lilojmayo if you are seriously this good you need to be playing for your high school team. If you are as good as you say you are you definitely could play division 1. I still dont believe you though. You could dunk alley oops when you were a 5' 6" freshman and you dunked from 12 feet out off 2 feet? yeah right.

6'0, i can dunk a tennis ball close on volley ball. If i did one of those vert. jump programs i could easily dunk. Just too lazy to look into something like that.

lost about 15 inches of vert from my peak. i'm 6'4", a former high jumper in track and field, and used get my head a couple inches from the rim. my favorite used to be driving baseline and reversing one-handed on the other side like jerry stackhouse used to do at unc. can't do that anymore obviously. used to take jumping for granted.

my prime athletic days are already over, and i'm not going to get it back. but if you're still young and athletically raw and want to add some inches to your vert, i can describe some of my old workouts that helped others too. run a couple sets of suicides or whatever makes your legs a little bit tired and then immediately go under the basket and jump as high as you can for 20 or 30 straight times. these are power jumps, not the little jump rope hops. those do nothing. anyway, if you can dunk the ball, dunk it 20-30 times or until you can't dunk anymore. if you can only dunk a tennis ball, do that. or if you can only touch the rim, hit that nonstop. do a couple sets of that and build more and add a few more repetitions each week. and if your legs don't feel like they're burining by that point, then you probably lying or you should be dunking by now anyway. the point is to work the muscles immediately and have repetitive hops that build super fast twitch explosion.

another exericise i really hated but was effective was the "chair" exercise. no, there's no chair to sit on, but you make your body position sit as if there was an imaginary chair. you go to a wall and do this. press your back side against the wall, and bend your legs down to form the "sitting position" as if there was an imaginary chair under your ass. you should be forming something that looks like a box with your feet and knees at 90degrees angle everywhere. don't bounce and just hold that position for as long as you can. it's an endurance exercise and everyone has different thresholds, but if you do it right, your quads should be burning like hell afterwards. this exercise also builds stronger knees.

and of course, do stretching before and afterwards.

as a 5'6 freshman if an alley oop was like right next to the rim i could dunk it. now i can take off from about 12 ft but im 10 inch taller.
i could play D-II no doubt right now, because some players that went to my school that are now in college play D-II and start on their teams and i was better than them. Not Sure about D-1 tho since nobody i know plays it so i couldnt compare myself to anyone

a 5-5 freshman 120lbs look how hard i grabbed rim Now im 10-11 in taller 50lbs heavier

5'5, mixed, can't dunk. I know guys who are a smidge taller than me who can actually grab the rim, but I can only touch the lowest part of the nylon on a good day..which is rare. I will have my day!

6 ft, black, can dunk on a good day, 2 footed jumper, if I could jump off 1 foot running I'd be throwing down 360s but I can't. I have to stop and go up off 2 feet

squat, then when you've got your leg strength up, box jumps and sprints
