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.

Update:

Still haven't played in a while but after about 2 months of lifting 4-5 days per week I stopped by a court to test it out. It took a couple jumps to warm up but I was able to get a weak dunk down. I'm probably 2-3 inches away from throwing it down consistently and another inch or two away from doing in game dunks. I think by summer I will be throwing it down again easily.
