AGE: 19

HEIGHT: 6' 1" without shoes

WEIGHT: ~160lb, could be slightly more

SLEEP SCHEDULE: Sleep usually between 11pm to midnight on weekdays. I mostly feel drowsy when I first wake up, start to get into things after about and hour. I usually smoke (mary jane) at night before going to sleep so I guess that's somewhat of a sleep aid.

BODY TYPE: Skinny, lanky build. Long arms and legs but I have broad shoulders. Not very strong, I would say my lower body is stronger though.

GOALS: Jump out of the gym. My ultimate goal would be elbow to the rim, but anything over a 40" RVJ would be awesome.

CURRENT ABILITY: Getting from about 2" above my wrist over the rim from a running DLVJ, maybe an inch more from SLVJ. With a reach of 7' 10" standing, that makes my DLVJ about 30" and my SLVJ about 31".

INJURY HISTORY: Achilles tendonitis over summer, went to rehab for 8 weeks and am now careful to not overwork it/keep it properly stretched out. Barely notice it now, occasionally after a tough session it'll feel a bit tight, but after stretching it out feels fine.

TRAINING HISTORY & ACHIEVEMENTS: Been working solo on my jumping for about 6-7 months now and have seen roughly 4-5" in gain on my DLRVJ. I started doing straight strength work on my legs and kept reading online about optimal training methods. I started with a leverage squat machine (never felt comfortable doing free weight squats, couldn't position the bar properly, but I've been wanting to start that up) and leg press a couple times a week. More recently, my leg workout has been:
1x10@250lb
1x8@260lb
1x5@270lb
on the leverage squat, all explosive as possible with ~5mins rest in between (do upper body in that time).
1x10@230lb
1x10@240lb
1x10@250lb
on incline leg press, also explosive and also ~5mins rest
1x10@150lb
1x10@160lb
1x10@170lb
on incline leg press, very quick up and down, explosive

I do that once a week and I need about 3 days to fully recover (isn't that long?).
The past 3 weeks I've been doing intermediate plyos from the VJB as well, so weights once a week and plyos once a week with a couple of straight ballin days in between when the legs are up to it.
I feel like I've been training hard for a while but not seen the best possible results. I want to train right, and I think if I get the right program I could be dunking by the end of the year.

CURRENT ACTIVITY LEVEL AND/OR TRAINING PROGRAM: Pretty much broke this down above. Just seeing the leg work typed out now it really doesn't look like much, but that's what I've been doing the past couple months.

BRIEF OVERVIEW OF CURRENT DIET: I eat a lot of crap, mostly because of gettin the munchies. Breakfast on weekdays is a bacon egg n cheese with a coffee and usually a muffin. Lunch is usually some kind of sandwich with meat and cheese and a soda. Dinner is usually a pasta and meat dish of some kind, with variations including pizza, sub sandwiches, stuff like that. After dinner I usually eat a shitton of unhealthy food - candy, ice cream, chips and the like.

IMPORTANT ACTIVITIES: I don't really need to be fresh for any specific time. Things to work around right now are work which go from early in the morning til about 5:30 when I get home. After that all time is my own.



Just to kinda sum up, I feel like I've been working my ass off trying to get my hops up and don't have that much to show for it. If I had put all that effort into the right training methods I think I could be dunking by now. Sure, I've seen some gains but I don't think I've been as efficient as I could have.
I've been following your journal for a little while and I have to say your dedication is inspiring. Anyway hope I've given you everything you need, looking forward to hearing your take.

I am definitely down for this.  I've been training myself for the last 4 months because I quit smoking bud and doing opiates cold turkey and cigs.  I have a beer once in awhile, that's it.

In 7th and 8th grade I played aau bball, freshman year was the last time I played organized ball (quit in middle of season, unmotivated).  Barely played ball after that, and played sparingly after high school.  Also developed some bad habits like smoking, bad diets etc.  Since freshman year till now, I've gained about 50-60 lbs and only grew about 1 in.

My stats right now-

AGE: just turned 26 few months ago

HEIGHT: 5 ft 8in 1.5cm

WEIGHT: 179lbs

SLEEP SCHEDULE: Right now i have a very erratic sleeping schedule because I used to do a lot of substances and played poker for a living (late nights and 1-2 day poker sessions, casinos, etc).  I also have to wake up 2 times a week at 4 am to run pick up games with this group of dedicated bball players, so that messes up my sleeping.

BODY TYPE: I am kind of fat, and I carry a lot of fat around my belly and upper body. I think I am around 20-25% body fat.  I was once 125 lbs with 6% body fat.

GOALS: I'd like to make NAIA team as a walk on next year fall semester when I enroll into college.  It is a wack division so I think I have a chance.  Dunking would be nice, but short term goal is to touch the rim which I'm about 5 inches short.

CURRENT ABILITY: Currently I have about a standing vertical of 24inches.  max bench - about 200-210, max squat not sure since i have bad form, max squat on free motion machine is about 330 (going all the way below parallel).  max deadlift is also unknown.

INJURY HISTORY: No serious injuries in the past, besides a very serious sprain in 4th grade that has completely healed when I was playing king of the mountain in the snow.  I have a little bit of plantar fasciitis when I dont stretch or when I run way too much.

TRAINING HISTORY & ACHIEVEMENTS: I used to train pretty hard in 7th grade- freshman year.  I went to basketball camps and trained myself every day and even won some awards at future stars, so i do have some type of experience in training.

CURRENT ACTIVITY LEVEL AND/OR TRAINING PROGRAM: For the last 3 months, I've been weight training, and playing a lot of pick up games.  Joined a church league that has some pretty solid competition with inner city and former standouts.  I lift about 2-3 times a week.  Haven't been doing a lot of plyo since I play a lot of pick up games and league basketball.

BRIEF OVERVIEW OF CURRENT DIET: I've been eating okay lately.  Steak, potato salad and veggie salads, fruits, breads.  I've stopped drinking soda completely in the last few months, replaced it with solid juice such as pure apple and cranberry.

IMPORTANT ACTIVITIES: Absolutely nothing besides basketball sessions on m-w-f for 2 hours.  It might make my legs pretty sore working out too much on those days.
33yrs | 24in SVJ | >45% BF | 227LB | 5'9 | 7'5 reach | 400lb max squat paused | 5'8 wingspan | 26in RVJ

Coming back from 2 years of inactivity!

Goal: Maintain 385-405lb squat while cutting down to 165 LB

BODY TYPE: MODEL! :))

GOALS: Best combined (svj+1 leg rvj+2 leg rvj) vertical in my country (i probably already have it between basketball/streetball players but there are some track guys that destroy me) + Long jump close to/or 8 meters (Very hard) + 2x BW Squat + Win a dunk contest

CURRENT ABILITY: head @ 9"11' rim (42-43 inches) off 1 leg, head @ 9"9' rim (39-40 inches) of 2 feet , 33-34 inches svj,
                              Squat (most recent full): 130 kg (287 lbs)=1.6x bw; Deadlift: 175 kg = 2.13x; Clean: 95 kg(210lbs); Snatch: 55 kg (120lbs) (didn't really try a max...);  Front squat (projected): 112 kg (246 lbs); Long Jump: 7m(last summer);


INJURY HISTORY: Twisted ankle really bad, couldn't play for a month (2 years ago) or more but got it better and hardened my ankles and i haven't been injured since then. Baddest injury while cycling, when i was 13, tore my tensor fasciae latae in the right leg after falling hard.
Since 30.12.2010 my right knee hurts and is badly bruised after falling on ice. Needless to say my shin is purple and green and ice cut through the skin on my ankle too :|

TRAINING HISTORY & ACHIEVEMENTS: Squatted since 15, started with 60 kg and maxed at 135 kg last year. Played basketball organised for the past 10 years and trained at the track every spring+summer+autumn for the past 4 years.
Best achievement: finals of the first stage of the EDC 2010 repping the Adarq.org tee.

CURRENT ACTIVITY LEVEL AND/OR TRAINING PROGRAM: Train every day one way or another (at least some push-ups or practicing c-walk if i don't ball, run track, go to the gym). While it's cold outside i'll stick to Squatting 2 or 3 days a week depending of fatigue: 1 day 2*5 + 1*8 the other 2*8 1*5 + upper body 2 times and ball around 2 times per week.

BRIEF OVERVIEW OF CURRENT DIET: Try to keep a clean diet but i go for the occasional empty calorie carb :(

IMPORTANT ACTIVITIES: Finishing my bachelors degree with a paper on Wavelength division multiplexing using multi quantum well lasers && Find somewhere to be hired after finishing school and starting the Master's Degree

Yes, but you're the exception to this. You need to pay big time to compensate for the free advice offered for so much time. Sorry, it was just a random thing that happened to you.
