    Some tips from somebody that can dunk are 1. Put basketball shoes 2. Work on plyometrics (they increase vert, agility, speed and are great to become a better athlete. 3. Work on dominating you’re body weight and jumping technique (work on 1 foot and 2 feet) 4. Listen to your body take decent rest days and keep working. 5. If you want you should consider buying a vert plan like vert shock, pro jump manual there are a lot more but yeah. I bought one and it helped me a lot i am 17 years old and ive been dunking since i was 15 but mainly 16 and 17. Send me a message on ig david.rosa13 and ill send it to you for free and anyone that wants it ill send it for free trust.

    You need to stretch your legs more often. It would also help if you are very flexible.

    1. try working out in some better shoes 2. your 2 steps before you take off should be your most explosive steps and quickest steps. But I 1000000000% support your grind almost working on your mechanics more so than working out on your body could help too. Seen dudes that bigger than you and about the same height dunk

    I am 5’7 not an expert and I can reach 9’8 can dunk on 9’6 on a good day. I guess a good tip would be the approch or the speed and how to avoid jumping forward

    A tip for you Jiedel you should try to keep your shin vertical when doing lunges it gives it more of a workout and the injury to your foot might have been because of that, good luck to you

    He needs to generate more power when he’s goin up to try and dunk, the way he’s doing it right now he’s not generating any power.

  • TRYST _

    You can’t just jump you have to take off, so when you are trying to dunk visualize flying and hit that second gear while sort of in mid air. It’s tough to explain but when it clicks you’ll understand what I mean

    don’t wear jordan’s or fancy shoes while working out, get a good comfortable and light pair of shoes for working out and running. jumping in jordan’s and working out in them can hurt your feet, probably why your foot was hurting too
