I meant that it is :
-Impossible to have 8.9% bodyfat and have some belly fat , 8.9% is seriously ripped!
-Impossible to be 6' / 6'1'' wingspan / 31'' maximum running vert and be able to dunk 10'. I am 6'1'' with 6'5'' wingspan and i still need ~34'' to dunk.
Not saying you are lying , you just probably got some numbers wrong.
peace

What did you do to measure your body fat %.  Unless you got it tested with calipers by someone very experienced with using them, you probably got a misread.  If you used electronic devices that send pulses through your body, they are as reliable as shit.  I am ~12-13%, but those devices said I was 5% LOLLL.  Even if you used calipers, there is room for error.

Vag, maybe he has a small head and short neck, and his shoulders are at a much higher starting point than yours? LOLLL
Goal is to dunk.

Vertical needed to dunk: 40"

Current vertical : 38.5"

Huh? I'm 6'0 with a 6'2 wingspan and I can dunk with a ~30 inch vert. I just need to get my thumb of the palming hand over the rim and that's it.

WTF?  You would have to palm the ball damn good , and i still doubt you could do it. What is your standing reach? Mine is 7'11'', 30'' is only 10'5'' for me.
Generally i'd say you need 8 - 10 inches above rim to dunk clean , i'd accept 7'' with perfect palming and timing and everything, but 5'' is pushing it too much.

On a SLRVJ, you don't really lose height on your jump with the ball, and I agree with Raptor, you can (not all the time) but dunk with 5-6inches over the rim.  If you have a powerful arm swing with the ball, the ball with hover on your fingers (not palm)and you can swing it hard to dunk it without losing control of the ball.  No?

I have dunked clean on a 9'6" rim before when I was jumping 35" at max (10'0" touch) using what I described above.

7'11 reach for me as well. But if I have a 6'2 wingspan and you have a 6'5 wingspan (how do you have such a HUGE wingspan?!?!) how can we reach the same height? You must have a really high neck and long head or something, so the 6'5 wingspan loses length to cover that distance. WTF :ninja:

BTW - I can't dunk without palming the ball. Not even at lower rims.

Raptor indeed i have long neck & head. Btw , i am 6'1'' in bball shoes , barefoot height is just below 6' ( 182.5cm ) , loooong hands!

Ineedtodunk  good point, Kellyb discusses that technique in this article : http://www.higher-faster-sports.com/lastlittlebit.html
Personally i can't use that , to get clean dunks at a rim i need to be able to get ~9'' above it without the ball. And if i can't palm the ball i need like 10-12 inches above , for cuffed one-handers or two-handers.
I probably just suck at dunking, LOL

Well , there you go!
This has gone too long , but 7'7'' + 31''= 10'2''
There is no way in this world you can dunk 10' when you can reach 2'' above the rim.
So when you dunked you jumped higher , even with raptor's extreme claim of dunking with only 5'' above the rim you would still need 34'' to dunk.
Sometimes it happens, the runup & plant are just perfect and you get a crazy PR jump. This is much more probable to happen on a single leg jump too because of the reactive nature of it , double leg jumps have much less fluctuation.

Ok , enough hijacking...
