you know what might work....dont take my word for it though. to me this jus makes sense

putting some weight on your legs. just doing jumping exercises/playin b-ball wit them/running wit them.....keep em on all the time and in probably 2 weeks, raise the weight, then raise it again 2 weeks later. then if you take the weights off you'll prob notice results.

so im sayin once you get used to the extra weight put on your legs, it's like a part of your body. its like the batters in baseball. when they on deck, they put some sh#t on the bat to make it heavier. then when they're up, they take that sh#t off and the bat feels lighter.

If you mean like putting on ankle weights, don't do it. It messes up your knees.

one thing that u can do that doesn't cost u a thing is walk around on ya tip toes. and run on them as well. calf raises, leg extensions, and hamstring curles help. but if u don't like liftin the just walk and run on ya tip toes for a while. it worked for me. i'm 6'0 and can play around the rim well. won a dunk contest my sophmore year in college.
