    the easiest way to jumping higher is calf raisers because im 5 foot 3 and can grab 8 and a half rim.

    Yo James when I was doing my dunk journey one thing that instantly increased my vert was starting with my arms back on the penultimate step (not swinging them, that is very important to NOT do.) and then timing it so that on the way up I swung my arms up and the transfer of energy would go vertical from horizontal. Hope it helps!

    Change your penultimate step as your last step and plant hard into the grand with your left foot at about a 45 degree angle to the rim. If you are driving from the right side face your feet that way before you jump. Make sure to have a big last step with lots of momentum. Keep up the work and have even lower rim sessions to practice finishing.

  • Laux

    You should use more arm swing to gain more momentum

  • ALB

    Hey James, I know you probably like coming up with your own workouts and diet. But “Fat don’t fly” by PJF Performance is the best program out there for you

    Where’s part 3?

  • shoe_gooru

    On your 1 foot it almost seems like you're too focused on the speed aspect. You should look into just jumping high and touching the board for a bit to help losen you up and work on elasticity

    I would recommend you to watch how Chris staples dunks look at the speed he has for takeoff.

  • R R
    R R

    You both should try to jump with more speed , both of you are slowing down before the jump it’s much easier to dunk with speed.If you slow down your legs don’t have as much spring effect as you would have with more speed .I can dunk and i recommend you to try jumping with more speed and without a ball.The takeoff part is really important just when you’re about to jump try to do the jump as quickly as possible!

  • Connor

    Man keep it up I can tell you look very well now!

  • Richy

    Dunk tip: Instead of bringing the ball on the same side of the foot you jump off of, bring the ball to the opposite side of your hip, and swing up your arms as high as you can. You see this great technique used by Zion Williamson and LeBron

    James, on your one foot jumping your last two steps are both longer than the rest of your strides, your last two steps are the most important Your second to last step should be the only one that is longer than the rest of your strides.

    That Steph Curry basketball training really helped James become a good basketball player. In his 1v1s he's doing almost everything right when it comes to driving and shooting. He sagged off once or twice in the first 1v1 but that was probably because of being tired from workouts. James is legit the big fundamental of the 2hype house

    james straighten ur back during nordics, its okay to fail at that exercise because that is really hard. When you go down, you're not involving the hips anymore, you just leave it out and you only let your upper body go down

    idunno who said to eat your body weight in protein but your body can only process so much protein per hour. so any excess amount over that is just wasted protein that you literally poop out.
