    First, don't do any kind of program, you will only stunt your growth. Jesus, at least wait until you be 15.


    Second, When you do, choose Air Alert

    11, 12, Jesus F*ckin christ. Do NOT do any programs or you will ruin the natural developement in your legs and will, in turn, stunt your growth.

    PS: I don't plan on arguing with an 11 year old.

    11, five, either way your just a little kid. If you are actually trying Air Alert, and following every set exactly as it states with the correct form you will damage your growth plates because that will be far too strenuous on your undeveloped legs. (EG: Doing 800 burnouts correctly, in one day, will have about a 50% chance of straining your growth plates). What exactly makes you an exception to this? What have you said to back up your statements? Do you even know what a growth plate is? No you don't, because you are 11 and probably being told by a fellow "friend" that you will be able to dunk if you do Air Alert. Well, not only will you not being able to dunk after doing this program, you will never be able to dunk in your lifetime because your legs will never develope.

    The correct age to start a high-strenuous program like AA should be around the age of 15, that's around the time when your legs should be developed enough to take the forcefulness of thesehigh intensity plyometric programs.

    and dont use f-ckin between jesus and christ you satanist.
    I'm not going to respond to this, I'm just going to say you will learn these things called "expressions" in middle school, and they will help you get through life and stop being a d*p**** with an attitude. I'm actually surprised you were aware 'satanist' is a word, props to you.


    Now, I hate to own little kids, but don't talk to me like you know what your talking about when you are, literally, half my age. But maybe now you will understand that what you are doing can and will hurt you later on when you reach puberty and teen years. If you must work on your muscles, you have to be on a low stress program that will naturally make you stronger and faster, such as low weight training combined with running.

    I need some advice, since you seem to know what your talking about. Im 15, 5'5 and 105lbs, but im in a growth spurt witch i get in about every 6 months or so were i grow up to an inch or less. Im am very skinny, my arms are realy skinny but they are pretty long for my height and my hands are as big as my 6"1 dads. I have been lifting for a few months and ive seen a noticible improvement in my upper body strength. My vertical is about 25" inches, and id like too know if i should do a jump program and wich one would be best.

    Honestly man, forget the jump program for now. Buy some protein shakes and go hit the weights. Your verts decent already, but you'll never do anything without some size and strength.

    Ok then im just making sure im doing the thing aswell seing as you lot know what you are talking about.

    I'm 14, 5-8, weight = 153lbs. Ive been doing weights around 20-30kg in a gym and lifting iron at about 5kg each hand. I do around 300 sit ups a week and around 100 -150 crunches because i wanted better upper body strength.

    My vert atm the moment is around 20-25 (i havent measured it) and im doin dunk now.

    Is this okay to do or am i overdoing it?

    im not stupid. you can say whatever you want but i am still growing. when i started aa i was 4'9.5'' and now im 4'10''. in one of the reviews i looked at online someguy had his 11 year old son do it. i dont think he would have had him do it if it was going to stunt his growth plates or whatever. also on the aa website it says to be 11 and up. guess what!!! im 11 einstein!!! and i havent done 800 burnouts yet and it is just jumping up and down anyway!!! now i think your just hating on me because your mad that you probably have a 5 inch vert and i have 16.25".
