Lower Body Explosiveness


Amazing picture. The individual in the picture was asked to dunk a basketball for the photo. When a basketball could not be found, Valerie Brumel, a Soviet High Jumper (Gold Medalist-64 Olympics) was asked to jump up and touch the rim for the photo. He responded by jumping up and touching the rim with his foot. Pretty Impressive!!

simply amazing

what are some good programs, to increase explosive leg strength, as for basketball?

holy fuckin shit

Pretty impressive but if you look at where his head is its not that high. For someone with an unreal vert you would think they could touch the rim with their head. Then again I suppose the technique of kicking the rim would be pretty hard and you would get as high. I dunno.
