I m a 5-9; 181 lbs Bball player here in germany and we don?t have too many people knowing there buisness like you do, I have a 26" Vert and want to finally be able to dunk on a regular basis, also do I need to improve my quickness drastically!! We don-t have a GHR or Rev Hyper though. I feel like I got much stronger using the Westside Methods, but not quicker nor did my vert improve. What can I do?

Related question.

Do you have a book or any other articles besides the "five dirty tricks" you published on t-mag, related directly to improving vertical in athelets?

Hi Joe, 1st of all, you are my guru, keep it up and thanks in advance!
Here my question:
I am using the westside template for 4 month now and yes it got me stronger, but also slower and my vert decreased.
my data:
sport:basketball; 5-9; 185 lbs; 26 inch vert now 25; bench went from 87Kg to 105Kg and low boxsquat from 120Kg to 135KG (all 1RM since westside). My relative body strength also lacks from a feel. What can I do? My nutrition is not perfect, but not that bad either and I started a diet on fri. Do you have any ideas or a template I should follw to turn my weaknesses into strength (and with this info I think you have an idea of what my weaknesses are)? How often should I static stretch (I would call myself medium flexible)? I would do anything !! Please help me !!
