Caught My First Dunk!!!
 
Ok it was a thursday practice right after school. Everyone was in the gym watching as we practiced and since the coach was not there we were just playin around. I was feeling pretty pumped and when everybody was dunkin I felt like I could catch 1. So first time I almost got it but it was off the backboard. Then the second time I jumped real high and threw it down. It wasn't like a tomahawk but it was a legit dunk. It felt so good.

I just did team practices and coach wants us to be the team in the best condition in the county. And it helps that we go to the weight room frequently. Also I wrapped my foot with athletic wrap to help gain some arch back in it which has been a big problem for me so that helped as well. Feels good to get up there :D
Hopefully I can get some videos and post it.

Congratulations. I got real sick right before Christmas break started. Then during the break all I did was visit family members and eat, or stay home and eat. During the span of these two weeks I only managed to play basketball once. I wish it wasn't so cold outside so I wouldn't have to walk to the YMCA. Now because of this I lost so much of my vert. I can't believe I was able to dunk it jumping from the line left/right of the rim(I think it is called lay-up line) when now I can't even dunk. Also what didn't make sense is that after I did that dunk, I was so hyped up yet couldn't do a dunk with 2-hands after several tries. Is it because I am a 1-legged jumper? Also how long would it take me to get my hops back?

Going up with 2 hands you don't get nearly as high because you can't extend as much. I get about 3 or 4 inches lower when I go up with 2 hands... and btw I'm a 2 legged jumper so no it's not just a 1 leg thing.

It should only take a week or 2 running a couple games every few days to get it back... You really gain stuff back as fast as you lose it so don't worry.
