Default How long does it take to gain 1 inch of vertical

Ok so my hops have been increasing hugely. From 6th grade 5'0 not being able to touch net to 7th grade 5'3 scraping backboard pads to 8th 5'5 touching glass. Now im 9th and 5'6-7" and i am literally 1 inch from rim. With a decent amount of training how long will it take to touch rim?

If you are really close then i wouldn't think it would take all that long.. Maybe a few weeks maybe a month..

Just keep trying and it will help enormously..

Who gives a $hit? You don't get points for touching the rim and nobody is impressed by someone that can touch the rim.

What's wrong with having mini goals.. It's what drives success, i'm sure if he can touch rim at 5'6 he'll be able to dunk once he reaches 6'0 and i'm pretty sure dunking is a pretty high percentage shot.

Ok sorry! I didn't realize he was a kid! I thought he was just some midget. My sincere apologies kid. PM me if you want to know how to gain a good 10 inches within a couple of years if you really wanna dunk. I got an e-book for ya!

P.S it's not some bs Air Alert or some ish. It's a book based on solid scientific principles and need proper application and lots of hard work.

You are what 14? Just keep staying active im sure u rnt done growing so u have that going for u too. There is really nothing special you need to do just plsy bball and results will come. One thing u want to try and do in life is not worry toomuch about results juste educate urself on the right way to things and put t in the effort.

Even if he was a midget, who cares? Anyone can work on their vertical no matter their height or age. More power to people who strive to get better, midgets included!

Don't know if the guy above me is joking but I felt like knee braces gave me about an extra inch of very maybe ankle braces help too.
