you should get into doing some plyometric drills

examples: jumping jacks, box jumps, up-downs, mountain climbers, jump-knee-tucks.

I was thinking power cleans, high pulls, hang clean. Plyos I thought about too.

was wondering if anyone has any solid programs towards this..

basically as I am getting back in shape I wanna see if I can regain anything for playing pick up hoops

sprints/fartleks

Will increase speed and quickness, no doubt. Plyo's not bad either.

jumprope w. leg weights. boxing sparring with heavy gloves.


bench press and let it bounce off the chest.

free weights at light weight more reps.

pretty much anything stax55 said

Drop 50 lbs you fat person that will increase your explosiveness! Just kidding all power moves cleans,deads bench(rest pause) etc off spints and gassers. find what works for you. You train for your goal. The strongest muscle isnt always the most aesthetic if it was power and olympic lifters wouldnt look like fat blobs. Strength is relative and you can NEVER out train your genetics and diet. Range of motion+power moves+cardio. PROPER rest and hydration are KEY!!! GL
