ADARQ & LanceSTS - Q&A / One-leg strength jumping exercises
« on: August 08, 2011, 07:51:32 am »
I've just read Raptors One-leg running jump - reactive vs strength jumping article and realized that I'm a total reaction jumper. Great for dunks comps and all but when it comes to game situations, i.e dunking on fast breaks I find my leg gives out if I'm really trying to get up there.  Its like my mind is saying dunk and my leg is saying fuck you, thus resulting in a totally uncoordinated dunk attempt where I only get 3 inches of the ground.

What exercises should I be working on to help me become more of a complete jumper?. 

ADARQ & LanceSTS - Q&A / Easing into it
« on: August 06, 2011, 02:20:14 pm »
Ok so I haven't done any real training for at least 3 years, (apart from balling that is) and I'm a little worried I'll over do it or worse injure myself if I go to hard. I've got 2 1/2 months until a big streetball competition here and I'm wanting to increase my first step, indurance and strength in my legs as much as possible in the time that I have. When it comes to programs I'm usually pretty good at sticking with them so any advise won't be waste of time. Just need a little direction as to where I should start as far as what exercises to do and how many reps I should be doing to start with.

I've added a sig below for reference as to age, weight, experience etc.
