    also before I comment on the article I will tell you honestly that your limiting factor is your weight and BF. You need to get your diet in order. Once you drop weight you will be faster and you will jump higher.

    he is really fucking smart! I love his articles.

    what i am saying is if you deit and drop fat you are automatically going to get faster. Also, just working on basic strength you will increase your potential. You don't need a specific program. You are new to training. You just need consistency and you need to build your foundational strength before anything else.

    yea, I may do things differently, but it is good.

    I wouldn't recommend jumping, especially weighted jumping to someone that is overweight like yourself. To much force on the knees and hips.

    Loose weight and train your strengths.

    no problem.

    I am just being honest with you.

    if you do what I say you will most defenitly get faster and jump higher.

    also, if you want to make the team, those two factors are important but you also need to enhance your skills.....ball handeling, shotting, passing, etc...

    Another key is to learn how to jump and land properly. This will reduce the impact on your joints and allow your muscles to do the eccentric breaking instead. Honestly, I need work on this myself, big time.
