    No kid, I gave you facts, and your choosing to ignore them. It's your choice to be retarded and ignore science and evidence of putting high stress on undeveloped legs. I didn't say you would stop growing the next day you dumb kid, it would slow it down and then eventually stop in a couple years. You are ****ing 4'9 you little brat, in 3 years if you continue doing this program, you will sotp growing when your 14, and be 5'1. That's your choice to make but your stance on it is extremely ignorant because your Falking 11 years old. It's pretty simple to comprehend so I don't see why you don't get it yet, you WILL damage your growth plates while doing Air Alert, it is too advanced for you, period.

    i think your just hating on me because your mad that you probably have a 5 inch vert and i have 16.25".:
    Kid, shut the f*ck up. I've been over this, I have nearly doubled your god damned verticle, it's 30'. Stop attempting to "belittle" me because it isn't working you spoiled punk. thinking about it, 16.25 is an awful vertical, I can't think of anyone of my friends (granted they are mostly black) under a 20' vertical.

    Your legs would/will develop naturally and if you excercise your vertica, in turn, will naturally increase your vertical until your finish developing.

    Return the program kid, it's wasting your money, time, and your potential.

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.
    Hey,

    I can tell you first off, there is nothing wrong with weight training when you are still growing as long as you stay away from your 1 rep maxes, because that would be too much stress for your muscles. So other than that, feel free to continue weight training.

    Second, if your goal is too gain muscle mass, it's extremely important that you keep your dieting up and eat about 6 small meals a day, getting in your protein, fiber, vitamins, calcium, etc. There is also no harm in buying a Whey protein shake to take after workouts, this will help recovery of the muscles and allow quicker gains with quicker recovery time.

    Third, the jump programs. You can always wait out your growth spurt if you are worried about stunting your growth, but at 15, your legs may already be ready to take onm the high stress of plyometrics. If you must buy a program, I would indeed suggest Air Alert IV from their website, it's fairly cheap and it has really quick gains. If you choose Air Alert, I would suggest training your legs with weight lifting too just to prepare your legs.


    Good luck.

    Is that really all you have to say? I'm a hater? I think I would call myself a "realist" and a "mentor" because I'm trying to help you and your being too ignorant to realize it.

    Second, don't say someone else is jealous of a 16 inch vertical again please

    Do you want to refute anything I had to say? Or do you finally realize that you are about to f*ck up your life?

    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?
    5'8 153...that's pretty heavy. Maybe you should hit the gym for some cardio workouts.
