since these is vertical jump sub section on TNation, i have decided to post it here. I do need some help with my vertical jump. I am 5’10 with short arms and small hands that i cant palm the ball. Right now, I can almost touch the rim with a stand still jump and touch rim with a run up. my goal is to be able to dunk.
As we all know, a good vertical stat is composed of 3 factors, limit strength, reactive strength, and explosive strength. my current stats are 435lb squat, 455 dead, 215 power clean, 200 hang clean, 400 box squat. So I think my strength is pretty good, and explosiveness is not bad. I concluded that i may not have a good reactive strength which compromising my vertical. I did some exercises listed in vertical jump bible. Since I did it right and properly, i did see some improvements, but not huge.
my question is–is there any specific exercises for me to master the vertical? and also what is the proper form to preform a vertical. like how deep u bend? jump off the fore feet or the whole feet. i really appreciate.
