Hi mates. I want to increase my vertical jump for basketball but at the same time, I am interested in bodybuilding so is there any way I can incorporate a vertical jump program into my workout? Thanks,

Stretching your hip flexors on a consistent basis is often an overlooked way to get full hip extension in your jumps- making them more powerful.
I would suggest having a day completely dedicated to this in the beginning of the week (ex. Sunday) and then have your regular leg day in the middle to end of the week (i.e Wenesday or Thursday)
It will not slow your leg growth for bodybuilding and will probably make your legs bigger and most defined. Most NFL and collegiate players do the workout I described above for their verticals and they have legs that would make a bodybuilder jealous.
Any questions about this, I'm here to help.Jesse Irizarry, CSCS, USAW L1
