    I reside in southern cali and I believe probably the most preferred recreation for boys is soccer... I'd cost it probably a 7. For ladies, I'd say volleyball when you consider that should you reside in southern cali and also you just like the seaside you continually ought to have a volleyball, you understand? :) I'd cost it approximately a 7.five.

    Plyometrics will do the trick for you.

    thats a lot of squatting, jumping, quick movements

    I used P90x Plyo to help me

    a small thing that helped me a lot was to walk and stand on my toes (the front of my feet) i developed this mannerism and it improved my verticle by quite a bit.

    Source(s): went from a 17" verticle to a current 31" verticle and i can now dunk really well.
