    Hey whats up guys I just wanted to tell you guys that doing heavy exercises such as squats, lunges and deadlifts mixed with plyometrics really increased my vertical jump and helped me develop a stronger base. I went from touching the rim to dunking in 12 weeks. Here is a video that I made.

    If only someone would just write a book teaching me how to get these results for just $17 with a money-back guarantee, dang, would that be sweet...

    This should just be the answer to every post in S&C.

    Actually a fast half squat correlates better to vertical jump in my opinion.
    I know that the lower you squat the more muscles you work, But I feel as if explosive half squats had made me see a higher increasing in my vertical jump than full squats.

    Really?

    Do you have a blog or a newsletter or something I can purchase?

    Good use of "absolutely". It's underutilized.
