You gonna buy a squat rack too, man? And will your friends spot every time you work out?

If you want this, you have to make some sacrifices. It's better if you prioritize how much you want this and how much you're willing to give up to become an elite athlete (which is what you pretty much said by saying a 40 inch vert, and definitely what you said by saying a 50 inch vert).

Those beasts that you see on Youtube? On Hoopmixtape/Ballislife? Those highschoolers that make it with a full ride to college and that play in D1 schools? They started around your age and made sacrifices.

It's up to you.
Nobody wants a 40 inch vertical more than me , believe . But i can't dedicate my life just training the vertical , im 14 year old , not 18 . And i'm making some sacrificies , a lot , but not with barbells yet , and i think is not obligatory to have a barbell to reach 30 / 35 inch vertical .

If you're not making the sacrifice, there ARE people who are, which means there are people who wants a 40 inch more than you "D.  Also, you're only 14 so that may be the reason why, but please don't think you have a hard life and it's so busy.  It will only get harder and busier at 18, at 21, etc...  At 14 years old, it was heaven for me.
Goal is to dunk.

Vertical needed to dunk: 40"

Current vertical : 38.5"
