    I would recommend getting like 5" taller. Or, and this is a good one, you could somehow improve your vertical jump by like practicing or something. I don't rightly know, but I do know that if you hold your breath for too long then you will pass out.

    Plyometrics are great

    Squat Jumps (squat then slight jump with low weight on bar)
    Strengthening your calves/hamstrings (quads too)
    Lose fat

    These are all good ways to increase your vertical jump.
