The OP has expressed that he isn't looking for that. He wants to gain weight. OP, why exactly do you want more muscle mass? I suppose its for taking hits in football, which is pretty reasonable.

I would agree, for football that is, that it is reasonable then, specifically for the linemen. Backs and recievers not so much.

Otherwise, I was hoping to give him another perspective of weight gain, muscular or not, if this is solely for basketball. Even the "big men" IMO, would benefit from not necessarily gaining wieght, but working specific strenth and power gains solely.

Bump, sorry for not responding until 2 months later.

Well currently I'm just starting the 3rd out of 12 weeks of a plyo training exercise. I wanted to gain muscle for football and taking hits, yes. With my height and weight I will most likely be a receiver or tight end. And right now, none of my max lifts are very high...

Bench is only about 140 max (Long, skinny arms and NO chest.) and hang-cleans is only about 115.

So if I try and lose a little body fat (Abs and thighs) by increasing by vert by doing plyos, and lift 3-4 times a week over the summer, won't I naturally gain more vert by increasing the strength of my legs, upper body, and especially the core?

most of the guys who got slow going to the gym, got slow because they just focused on pumping iron. if you do gym work along with dynamic speed training you will be fine. Squats are a good idea. Because they target you thighs (the biggest muscles in your body), you will experience an increase in testosterone. meaning your overall body mass will increase faster than with resistance training. for your speed and vertical just make sure you keep up with your plyometric training program.

4 days a week of plyos? Too much. Especially for a young kid IMO. Youths are already getting enough plyo work playing basketball, running around, jumping over and on things, etc. A regimented plyo program twice a week...maybe three for those who may not get out as much is plenty enough.
