Mike you got alot to learn

Mike you got alot to learn kiddo.

You need to develop fast twitch muslces. There are two different types.... Fast twitch and obvious slow. Simply running develops the slow one meant for distance runners. This will have you in basketball shape not running shape... and trust me you do this you will so cat like quick there will be very very few who can stay in front of you. Plus your vert will easily increase 6 inches....

I was the short white kid barely jumping....before i started the program my coach got me clocked in at 4.9 40 yard dash time and 23 inch vert.....once i was done with only 5 weeks i had a 4.5 40 and 33 inch vert. Telling you, at The high school level Athleticism is EVERYTHING....there is a reason players who are considered RAW still get d-1 offers. because that can be taught.

Mike if your looking for a quick help right now, i got something for you but if you want the real stuff you need to PLAY against competition everyday....EXPERIENCE is everything.

http://www.betterbasketball.com/ best videos out on how to get better.....go to Piratebay.org or btjunkie.com and download all the movies you want to know about....it will take you about 30 hours to watch all the movies but you really can't get any better knowledge out there inless it is face to face.

It is eveyrthing just listed

It is eveyrthing just listed above......You have questions about it let me know. But you 100% into it you will get better results....

I am telling you right now tho Mike...If you don't have a outsider pushing you it will extremely difficult to do it alone. you may give yourself to many breaks or just feel like you can't do 100%.

It was dedication that drove me through it all.... i battled a 102 degree Temp. just so i wouldn't miss a day. (which was stupid never ever workout when your temp is that high i was in the E.R for 3 days) But the point being you have to have EXTREME self motivation to get everything out of it.

BTW Ricky,

Once you get the workout down. Really shouldn't take more then a hour. And if a kid can't spare a hour in his day...Then i feel really bad for you because you are doing to much and not enjoying being a kid.

Thanks

I'll give it a try. See how I feel and if I can manage it all. It isn't easy with these teachers piling so much homework on us either. Second Day of school I got homework, guess that's what happens when you are in Honors and whatnot. Thanks though, I got my cousin who's 20 and he pushes me, but once he moves around here I'm sure he can help me more.

Yea but 1 on 1 trainers are

Yea but 1 on 1 trainers are only good for 2 things
1. Motivation
2. Defense

Seriously mike go watch those videos from Better Basketball....Start with the Chauncy Billups one ( Better 1 on 1).

You got to understand basketball is nothing more then read and react. Once you have the skills down it is just developing them so you can react faster.

Watch those videos practice them then find a 5 on 5 game to try out everything you learn that day. and just keep doing it EVERYDAY. You're what 15 you said. That was around the time i took the game serious. Everyone wishes they could go back and change something well i am here to advise you before you follow my footsteps.

Practice and Practice alot but you have to understand if you not playing against REAL people then it doesn't matter. Once you play against those athletic people you understand how to react against them. You have to balance them both Practice in the morning play at night. Heck it is summer time dude! Wake up like all NBA players do at 6am Workout go thru those Plyo's Relax for the mid day and Ball out crazy at night.

Ok

So PlyoCity is the way to go? Not Air Alerts or Jumpsoles.
Yeah, I haven't played as much ball as I use to. I got down on myself this past summer when I didn't see any improvement in my game, but I didn't play as much so I guess it should have been expected.

Lol Those jump soles are

Lol Those jump soles are funny.....

Everyone thinks Calf's are how you jump higher But it comes from every part of your body

You want to jump higher, Work out your Glutes, Hamstrings Lower back and Back. Think about the motion you do before you jump and you will understand Calf's barely provide any part to jumping.

I am like 98% sure that is a robot or something i was dead and barely breathing and that guy is just talking about like he isn't even doing anything. The only reason i went on was because i was pissed at him for talking so damn much, mocking me everytime he let out " Oooooo doesn't that burn....78 79 80" While i was still on rep 19.

u know what i think i am going to try that workout again....I'll throw up alot but heck i was Ripped after those 4 weeks of doing it

Tellin you mike you sprint

Tellin you mike you sprint and go All out through each exercise i promise you, u will get extremely better.

U need any help understanding any of them let me know, aight?

BTW Don't lift on the days you do the footwork drills, It can cause some serious damage to your CL's or sprain them or other muscles.

just do a practice run of each exercise before you do it all so your not stopping for 2 mins trying to learn each one.

It's not possible to

It's not possible to increase your 40 by .4 in only 5 weeks. I think all the workouts and stuff you listed will work and show great improvements but it's not possible to do that with your 40 in 5 weeks. Speed can only be taught to a certain extent and .4 in 5 weeks just doesn't happen.

What he said will definitely increase your speed. I'm just saying it isn't possible to increase it by that much in such a short period of time.

YupYup says who.....there

YupYup says who.....there are alot of things that can factor into a change in speed that much....4.9 isn't that fast at all.

Usian Bolt cut a whole tenth off a world record in just a year and you're telling me i can't go from slow to semi fast.

Speed potential is all based on genetics dude it doesn't matter how long it takes....If my DNA is mapped out to that speed already then 5 weeks is more then enough to reach that.

Like i said a bit ago I was clocked in a 4.9 one time, it could have been a bad run or something but i can tell you i went as fast as i could go.

It works and you will dramatic improvements if done right.

Tim

You can get faster yes. But just listen to what you said. Usain Bolt cut a tenth of his time in a year (100m or 200m). You cut 4 tenths in 5 weeks. 4.9 is pretty fast for a normal person and a 4.5 is fast for anyone. It just isn't possible to reduce your speed by that much ni a short amount of time. You can definitely get faster but 4 tenths doesn't happen like that. I could see dramatic improvements from your workout, in fact I guarantee you will get great results from your workout. But that speed difference isn't possible you must have been a lot faster then a 4.9 or just bad clockwork.

Go to speed trainer and ask them if it's possible to do. It just isn't. You must have had faulty timing.
