    Any chance you can reup the PDF? The rapidshare link is dead.

    This file is neither allocated to a Premium Account, or a Collector's Account, and can therefore only be downloaded 10 times.

    This limit is reached.

    To download this file, the uploader either needs to transfer this file into his/her Collector's Account, or upload the file again. The file can later be moved to a Collector's Account. The uploader just needs to click the delete link of the file to get further information.
    Or is this it the same?

    update: earlier today i threw down an 'oop (when someone throws up a basketball and i catch it and throw it in). took me like 10 tries but i finally got one. damn i wish i had recorded it..

    it was a slightly lower net, something like 9'10", but it's definitely progress.

    How much would you say your vert has increased?
    This is not for you.

    For some reason I jump better off 1 foot it seems. Also I found the easiest way to learn to dunk was just keep going at over and over and over. Your muscles get soooo fucking tired and sore, but I just kept at it and was throwing it down in no time. Also stretching helped me a shiiiiitload.

    hm haven't done a new vert test yet. but i'd say maybe 4-5"?? i'll know for sure whenever i do a new test, but i want to wait at least a couple weeks for my legs to fully recover

    yea jumping off one foot is definitely better, because it's a much smoother movement. but i can't get nearly as high when i do that, so i'm stuck with the two feet approach

    Did you stop trying or did you continue this? I'm currently trying to dunk a basketball but I'm 6'1 so I've got quite an advantage. My workouts haven't been as extensive around jumping as yours have though.

    no i completed the 12 week program. then waited about 2 weeks for rest, then started jumping again. i can jump pretty far from the rim now, like from the charge circle to grabbing rim, and can throw down an alley oop from jumping near the base of the hoop.

    I went to my gym the other day after having not trained seriously for 5 months and my (old) coach worked out with me and we finished our warmups with some running jumps over these things from IceBox Athlete (we just had the blue and white posts with the crossbar)



    anyway, even after having not trained in so long I STILL rocked a 4.5 foot vertical jump (that is of course, knees tucked, just getting over it). i know thats useless for bball but i was still impressed.

    It trains agility and explosive speed. That's great for basketball lol. I am subscribed to DeFranco's gym on youtube and he has a lot of football athletes doing those types of movements. He has to have the best gym used by professional athlete training in the US.

    Thanks to you and ddubs! I'm dying to get back to playing volleyball, and I couldn't find my old jump training book. I'm starting with the beginner section, and I'm worn out after doing the whole set! This is great, I can't wait to get my jump back. In highschool my vert was 40-42", and measured higher than that with a volleyball approach. It went down to 36-38" in college as I gained weight, but was much stronger so I hit harder. So I'm thinking if I can get back to a solid 36" vertical, I should be good for the level I want to play.

    nice. allow for 2-4 weeks for your legs to rest after you complete a 12 week program to see maximum results
