Do you guys have any input on the online programs? I don't like his marketing, but I've read a lot of good things about Adam Linkenauger's program/s and like that he has obviously practiced what he's preaching. Phone Post

Since this thread is about vertical jumping...

...interestingly in American sports it is American Football players, particularly those who play the receiver, defensive back, safety and linebacker position who have the highest vertical jump averages. Most people would assume NBA basketball players would have higher verticals but that isn't the case.

In these NFL combine results no player had a vertical jump less than 30".

Spud Webb could've made a fortune selling vertical jump training videos.

(side note: it is pretty well established, that while they can be improved upon, speed/explosiveness are the least trainable facets of strength. Not everyone has the potential to dunk regardless of what training they do, conversely some short guys can do it without any special training)
