I dunked for the first time at age 30...so you still have plenty of time! Keep working!
Don't think so, check out the Jump Manual, imo it's a real good vertical jump program, u can download it.
It has all the exercises you mentioned above!
I did it and played ball twice a week at...
I would definitely work on flexibility! That alone will help you tremendously!
First you're only 15 so you may be 6'1+ when you're 19-20, second you're 136lbs now, put some meat on them bones and you'll get there man! GL!
Yep for sure, many factors like you said! I was just saying that he shouldn't feel down if he can't squat 350.
It's better if he can but if it isn't the case, there are always other exercises that...
I can only squat 280lbs and I have a 38-39inch running vertical. To increase your vertical you need to work on explosive movements. Heavy squats will help you but they're too slow. It's better to do...
I did the Jump Manual, and I saw nice gains! I broke my leg playing ball, doctors told me I would never be able to play again, let alone dunk!
I had never dunked before, and it had always been a...
Hey man, would you mind watching my vid here and give me some tips on how to improve my jump technique ?

The Jump Manual mentions rest/recovery days, those are the...
Sounds like a great plan!
It sounds fine to me, don't forget to train your core muscles as well.
You're most likely a power jumper. Meaning that you're using mainly your quads to jump.
BTW, many dunkers in the NBA are 2 leg jumpers.
Alright so here's the thing: I go to gym 3-4 times a week, I include plyometrics with weighted vest(10 to 20lbs) in my gym sessions twice a week (I also do squats and calf raises on my plyometric...
Like other guys said : work on your vertical! It's definitely not mental in your case!
Damn at 6'6 I would be dunking all over the place! Also you must have long ass arms, so once you put in the...
Damn! That was impressive, nice windmill!
Thanks for the advice! Yeah, I will lose some weight, I think it will help me get a few more inches above the rim!
@rhymes: thanks man, I will try...
Hey guys I'm on a long and painful journey to dunking. I had a terrible injury (broken leg) but I'm back training with a vengeance !
Doctors say I would never be able to play ball and jump like I...
I'd say 11%. We're almost the same weight and I'm at 11%
Sh*t, how come deadlifts don't help my vertical! Guess I'm doing it wrong
I would add calf raises as well for vertical training!
