Default MUST READ: How to get a 40+ inch vertical

The secret is..........practice dunking! Seriously! No need to buy any special programs, equipment or anything. Just simply practice dunking. This guy went from this...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_wCJoPYdgM
Just about being able to dunk on a non-regulation 9 inch rim, to this...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ps_GKQaNj_8
Also won the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest in Toronto.

He replied to a comment about how he got his vertical saying "all i've ever done to gain vert was dunk. every. single. day. so basically i just as high as i can as many times as i can." Also, MJ said in an interview that he got his hops from just practicing dunking and jumping. It works all the necessary muscles needed for a high vertical.

if you check out his other videos, it clearly shows he is doing box jumps. i m pretty sure he does more than just trying to dunk every single day to improve his vertical. stop feeding off that crap to youngsters.

you need to lift, do pylos and practice your footwork leading to a dunk to improve your vertical

If it were simple as that a lot more people would be throwing down insane dunks. Unless your born naturally a good athlete you need more than just "trying to dunk" everyday to do what he's doing.

Yea you don't just practice dunking to achieve max vertical. Playing your ass off and jumpin high while playing and practicing will help you attain an impressive vertical, it won't help you attain max verticle. Doing that in combination with explosive weight lifting and plyometrics will.

Default Re: MUST READ: How to get a 40+ inch vertical

vert is a simple formula
the basics if over 15 yrs old
1. lose any fat if present
2. Squat 5x5 until you plateau then 3x5 till you plateau then - 3x3 till you plateau until your vert
3 when your squat is greater than 1.75x bodyweight than start plyos but keep squatting (your goal is 2.5 BW squat)
4 plyos, sprints, bounds, depth jumps box jumps

Profit.
these will make you jump high but the best jumpers of all time had more than just this
the additional factors
1 long thigh bone in comparison to body (genetic)
2 fast twich muscle fibres (genetic)

the additional work
Case study Kadour ziani
being able to squat 2.5 BW and doing plyos will get u jumping high
but kadour ziani didnt jump high from doing just that because he is elite in every aspect
the additionals
1) mobility/flexibility (ziani can kick, yes kick, a 10 ft rim) some people say that it decreases the "rubber band action" of jumping if the rubber band of your legs was limp.
2) nutrition/ recovery foam rolling, contrast showers , ice baths
eating well
3) jump technique
4)visualization/confidence/mentality
5) grip strength to palm a ball

Bo Jackson is a perfect example of a guy who didn't lift weights, but constantly ran over LB'ers and ran by Deion Sanders in college. He is considered the greatest athlete of all time, and hated lifting weights.
