Powerlifter Looking For Power

Hi all,

I'm a lifelong skinny guy (5'9.5", 130 lbs when I was 20) who finally started powerlifting in his 30's and put on some size and strength. But I also wanted to get faster and jump higher and that didn't happen with powerlifting or even weightlifting training. Recently I started using bands in my jump training (with the Portable Power Jumper) and my standing vertical increased 5 inches in a month and my broad jump increased over a foot. I need some help in keeping the progress coming and I want to work on my sprint next. I also recently dunked for the first time. It was a smaller soccer ball on a 9'10" rim, but it felt pretty good.

I have long arms and legs and am a natural deadlifter. I used to be a unilateral running jumper when I was 50 lbs lighter, but now I'm very much a power jumper.

Age: 35
Height: 5'9.5"
Wingspan: 6'4"
Standing Reach Barefoot: 7'10"
Weight: 180 lbs
Standing Vertical Jump: 28"
Running Vertical Jump Bilateral: 30.5"
Running Vertical Jump, Unilateral: 25"
Standing Broad Jump: 9'3"
Beltless High Bar Squat: 350
Beltless Conventional Deadlift: 450
Low Bar Squat w/ Belt: 418
Sumo Deadlift w/ Belt: 506

Thanks for reading.
