I'll probably spend the summer getting back in shape so I can dunk again. I'm not a big workout guy so I don't care how much I can lift or getting a specific "look" as far as my build goes so dunking will be a nice goal to have.
We sound similar in terms of build and whatnot (I think you mentioned you were the same weight too). I'm pretty sure if I took 2.5 years off from competition I'd probably be in the same boat as you. I have to work to keep things going. How old are you?
