Excerpt: Just thought I would finally jump in here. After much prodding from Benchmonster I would like to introduce myself. I probably subscribe to the bodybuilder look over the powerlifter but I think we can all learn from each other. I will run down my pathetic stats in the near future.

Just thought I would finally jump in here. After much prodding from Benchmonster I would like to introduce myself.

I probably subscribe to the bodybuilder look over the powerlifter but I think we can all learn from each other. I will run down my pathetic stats in the near future.

The Benchmonster just happens to be my brother

Glad you finally said Hi to the group.

Mac Sledge is not a powerlifter, guys, but he is very strong and athletic. Probably one of the few on the board that can dunk a basketball. Also a Hell of a softball player and quite a guy. He happens to be my real life brother, and can attest to the pathetic puny creature I used to be.

What's this used to be talk? You are still quite puny and pathetic. Don't be so hard on yourself.

Don't take this personally, I am just asking this out of curiousity...

"The Dunking Issue"

Before I begin, please let me say that I am only 5'11", 215lbs, and can squat around 450 (olympic squat style). I have always squatted with a narrow stance, I could never get the hang of a wide "power squat" stance. However, my glutes and lower back are very developed. I can easily dunk a basketball. I can jump off of both legs with no start and do it, I can take a couple of steps and dunk off of my right foot. Oh, and I am white.

The deal is-- I have always been under the assumption that people who are strong squatters (and aren't extremely short or overweight) have good vertical jumps. Based on that assumption, I would have to disagree that there is a lack of people on this (powerlifting) board that can dunk a basketball. Its nothing major, just the first time I've really heard someone say to a group of powerlifters that they cannot jump. ANYWAY, I just assumed that most of the guys here could dunk based on their listed squat maxes (I am probably average to below average). I have also heard that PL/Oly lifters have better 20 yrd dash times than most sprinters. That may or may not be correct, it is just what I have read/heard.

Not making a big deal out of a little thing, the topic just sort of interested me. Oh, and welcome to the board, Mac Sledge.
