2 Years out from D1 Hoops!

Hey there everyone, been reading this site for a while, but wanted to read most of the articles/forum posts before asking for help. My question is this. I am currently 6 feet tall and 180 lbs, and have a legitimate shot at playing division one basketball.

My end goal is an ivy league school to play at, since I’m almost sure I won’t play professional anywhere. My basketball skills are up to par in terms of division 1 (told by numerous low-mid major division one coaches), but I need to work on my athleticism.

My current vertical leap is approximately 27 or so inches.I’ve just finished reading the VJB and will use those plyometrics for my reactive strength.

I have spent a few years in the weight room, but I feel as if going really hard for the next two years I will be able to break into the level of vertical leap/quickness/overall athleticism I will need to compete.

In addition to putting up anywhere from 300-500 shots daily (and ballhandling, conditioning, etc.) I have included my workout, and please critique as you find necessary. Any criticism is welcome.

Thanks again, and any help you guys can give me please let me know.

Do you have any pictures of yourself holding a sneaker?

So you;re going to to use the same weight and same number of sets/reps each time you do a workout? Progressive overload! And just do what the VJB says for your lower body, because what you have there is all over the place.

why would a picture of me holding a sneaker help? and Alex, I know that, that’s why I listed the weights under “current weight” I know to add weights/reps every workout is progressive overload.
