my name is...

Hey there, for those who dont know me let me fill you in. I am a 25 year old ex basketball player who lives in Las Vegas. Around age 21 or so I started training for vert improvement. I scoured the net for info and ended up getting hosed by marketer after marketer. (thanks so much for the "Call em out" section, should be first result for vertical jump google searches) Now years later I have a pretty good jump to show for all of my efforts. (i did find one decent program finally) I am 5'11" approx 185 on most days. Recently I have been playing alot of basketball and sticking to a simple lifting template consisting of mainly the big lifts.

I am mainly here beacuse it seems to be a more active forum, and I really respect the opinions and efforts of trainers such as Adarq and LanceSTS. Their no bs, not in it for the quick buck, approach is refreshing and greatly needed.

thanks for the warm reception,
adarqui I took a while off of lifting (3 months or so) as I was hitting basketball pretty often during those times, so I am slowly working my way back into it. I haven't gone for any maxes yet but my most recent lifts were challenging @ (255*5 for 5 sets on back squat), (185*5 5 sets bench press), (115*5 for 5 sets military press), (295*5 1 set deadlift), (pull ups bw+35 3 of 5). I have been back into it for a month or so now so I will try to put a program togther here pretty soon.
