    I saw your post, lots of articles. I'm just wondering if those will help my vertical jump or not because my goal really is size, increasing vert is secondary. I think if I do other things, i'll sacrafice muscle.

    front squats are the only thing that will help a bit. You can scrap the rest.

    Back squats are better. But you need to do em real fast once you get some decent strnegth base happening.

    Jumping requires great strength coupled with high speed

    Well the others i'm doing for size... I was just wondering if they would help vertical too...

    I'm gonna do a semi-bulk (2500-3000 calories) for about 2 months. Then this summer, I'm going low carb and running sprints 3 days/week. Will sprints help my vertical?

    yes

    but no matter what, if you don't jump a lot, your jump will still be crappy

    So should I add in some pylo's on my calve days (2 times/week)? Would that slow down muscle gain you think?
