Trying to dunk
 
I need help here. I just decided I want to dunk even though I don't really play basketball anymore. I'm reasonably athletic so I don't think it will be too hard, but does anyone have any tips or tricks?

Do heavy squats and deadlifts (where you can do a maximum of 6 reps per set) once a week and jump around like a madman when you play ball. Literally that is all you have to do.

Can you palm the ball? Two feet or one foot jumper? What is the measurement from the top of your hairline to the tip of your nose? Dunk in general? Like, who cares if I travelled and double dribbled right before the dunk, I still dunked.

do the lifts swaggin suggest and get protein in your body within 15 min of finishing your workout

I first dunked when I was in the 8th grade.

You just gotta play everyday and it will come.

I was probably like 5'7 or 5'8 about 125 lbs

Never did any training until high school
