OK, well, it was an 8 foot rim in Peru, but it was glorious. That’ll do, pig. 8 months ago

MickyhbombDunk a Basketball

I’m 5 foot 10 and a 1/2. I can’t hold the basketball in one hand so will have to double hand dunk it. I want to dunk the ball not for the sake of dunking but also because the level of athleticism needed to dunk would make me an much better all round player in all the other sports i play, and not just in basketball. I can touch the ring at the moment. need about another 10 inches to dunk.

and i’m 29. time is running out on a childhood dream of mine. 13 months ago

After more than 5 years on my list, I’ve finally decided to do something about this goal. As part of my new year’s resolution, I vowed to get in shape. I injured myself earlier this year as a result of just being overall lethargic, so I started exercising.

I teach at a primary school and some of the teachers said they wanted to do a competitive basketball game; primary teachers vs. secondary teachers. I decided that this was my opportunity to start conditioning myself to playing basketball again. (We didn’t fare so well, by the way, in our game, but that’s another story.)

I researched several different conditioning drills, and began to implement them into my program. One set of those drills was to help increase my vertical leap. Just two weeks ago, I stood below the backboard and marveled at how it dwarfed me. It seemed impossible that I’d ever even touch the backboard.

But I kept at it, and all the while I noticed my weight had started to go down and I felt really good about myself. Just this morning, I touched the bottom of the backboard! I was so excited, but was also spent after a few more jumps. I only hit the backboard that one time, but now I know that it’s possible and that I have to keep at it more, and soon I can set a new goal for myself. 23 months ago

dunkinfrycookStill not there

I can do it one handed, but not with both hands. I used to be able to do this fairly easily in my 20s, but after a broken knee and a couple years of having the basketball relegated to the closet, it’s a struggle.

I’m 6’4”, 195 lbs. I should be able to do this consistently!

Anyway, my goal isn’t just to dunk it, but to dunk it in a game. I’ve been playing 5 on 5 full court picku up games 3-4X a week for the past few months, and I’ve definitely gotten in better shape. I’ve had plenty of opportunities, but I have yet to really try to throw it down in the heat of the moment.

I think I’m kind of stuck. I might try to do some specific training for vertical jump development. 2 years ago

I can dunk already on a regulation rim, but I want to do it in a game! I’m going to continue playing pickup basketball 3 times a week to improve conditioning, but will separately practice jumping at the rim with a basketball in my hands – hopefully it will get easier and at some point when the stars align during a game, I will do it like I practiced! 2 years ago
