    Basketball Player 6 month for play Pro and Dunk

    Hey i am 18 years old
    basketball player
    I point guard and shooter
    My height - 6'0 - My weight - 155lbs pretty thin.

    I have 6 months for the next season I want to get the most ready there!
    I want to improve my athleticism, I want to dunk in these 6 months.
    I wanted to ask you how you would plan your work in these 6 months?
    There are several options to start -

    1) Getting Stronger - Starting Strength Programm (my squat is 220)
    double up my squat and my deadlift for dunking a basketball

    2) Jump Manual Program By Jacob Hiller to gain 10-15 inches
    12 weeks

    3) Vert Shock Program By Adam Folker 9-12 inches
    8 weeks

    all i want is dunk the basketball . getting shape for the next season
    And yes, I'd like to gain weight

    What should I start?

    Good luck doing jump training with 5x5 OP. I would just do the jump training and whatever workout program they suggest (I know the jump manual has one) as strength does not = athleticism... otherwise we would have powerlifters and oly lifters being the best athletes

    10 inches is a large improvement in a short period of time, but I will never say it can't be down. Maybe for some people with top tier genetics and people who never miss workouts. What did Mike Jordan say about talent and hard work.... Ik the quote lol but just remember when you got hard work and talent it will be very tough to beat on the court. I would recommend trying to get a little heavier at only 155 but do it as slow as possible to minimize fat gain and loss of athleticism on the court. I have never played on a team for basketball, but have played here and there was pretty good for being 5-10 185 pounds my senior year of high school was in the top 30% in my gym class, however I prefer football or baseball. Now though I'm all about powerlifting.
