hello all

hello, i've always wanted to dunk ever since i was in the 5th grade. i'm 6 foot, but i don't have the best standing reach, only 7'9 in shoes. i'm 20 right now, and i haven't stopped growing since highschool ended when i was 18, so i'm hoping that i can maybe squeeze out an inch in height and wingspan. i'm a double leg jumper and just today i barely got some dunks off on my 9'5 foot hoop in my backyard, so if i don't grow anymore, that will be like 7 or 8 inches in vertical before i start dunking comfortably on 10 foot. my 2 legged jumping training has been pretty straight forward so far, all i do is squat twice a week, deadlift once a week, and just jump, and it has been working. i haven't been training my single leg jump as hard, but i recently read a lot of articles though on insane athletics on single leg jumping. i also post on their forums, and have learned more, and now i'm hooked on single leg jumping. i also think that it'd be cool to be able to get up both ways, so i have a lot of catchup to do with my single leg. anyway, thanks all for reading this, hope i can get some feedback.

So how long have you been doing that 2xsquat/1xdeadlift week thing, what were your start numbers ( max squat / mas deadlift / max jump ) and what are they now?
Also what is was your bodyweight and bodtfat then and now?
All that info would help people get a much better view on your case..
:welcome:

hello, i don't have any exact numbers, but i've been able to touch the rim since i was in gr.10(16 yrs old). i started squatting in gr.11(17 yrs old). when i started squatting, i remember i was easily able to go to 135 even though i was pretty skinny. i've been lifting on and off since than. my PR for the squat is 245x5 which i did a few months back. my PR for the deadlift is 315x5 which i also did a few months back. i recently started getting back into lifting, so i hope i can attain those numbers soon. my first dunk one hand dribble dunk off two legs was a few months ago too, but it was in between half court pickup games and i had a lot of adrenaline. i wouldn't have been able to do it normally. currently am 165 lbs and am around 15% bodyfat. thanks a lot
