I have always been athletic, but did NOT pursue team sports in school (the tall skinny blond kid playing drums at all the games - funny). Where do I turn to get more involved in basketball?
I am 6'4", currently 204lbs (~13-14% body fat). When not working my busy-ass high-tech job or playing music, I'm a gym rat. Every 3rd month I run 12-15 miles per week (cross-country, including steep hills, etc.).
So I feel conditioned enough to tackle my favorite sport (basketball) if I can find an outlet that does not require "prior experience." Does anyone have any suggestions?
Jumping: I have searched around the internet and have noticed a number of jumping and basketball skill programs -- does anyone have any experience with any of those, thoughts or suggestions?
Thanks to Ian King's "Killer Leg Exercises for Strength and Mass" video I bought years ago, I have a solid leg program (I focus on functional strength, not mass). If I recall, Ian also posted a jumping program on T-net once in the past but I cannot find it.
Either way, I want to focus my leg training on exercises that support jumping (e.g. dunking a basketball at the full 10ft NBA height). Why? Because it is a fun goal and chicks dig it... I think.
Any help or thoughts are kindly appreciated!
