    You may want to check out the journal section mate, from memory there are a few people doing westside for skinny bastards.

    try searching for "WS4SB" or something similiar.

    Short story, im a college basketball player and i gained 20 lbs the last 4 months doing SS but i lost speed and vertical, so now im a strong but slow wingman (with NO vertical).

    I'd still like to at least keep the muscle (if not gain a little more) but focusing this time in my sport and not in my mirror, weightroom, etc. I want my speed and vertical back, while keeping or gaining muscle.

    Reading De franco's articles, i think that's what i need.

    PS: how should my diet look?
    PS2: my bf is 20%.

    For diet check out the diet section for more detail. Some basic things though
    #1)1g of protein per body pound
    #2)eat maintenance calories or slightly above to keep weight constant. Check out the diet section on how to determine your maintenance cals cause i dont know a lot about diet.

    Im currently following westside for skinny bastards and i think im going to have great results. Its a solid program that allows you to get stronger, quicker, and more explosive over all. another person that followed westside for skinny bastards is gatorman. He has a log here also. Westside is pretty similar so you may want to check out some westside guys logs as well.

    I used ws4sb about 2-3 years ago. Worked great for strength development. Get that diet right, and get on A program. I recommend this one for simplicity's sake.

    i don't see how your vertical went down if you were squatting hard.
    ain't nuttin but a peanut.

    You will have gotten stronger when the weight that feels heavy is actually heavier than the weight that feels heavy now. Then the weight that feels heavy now will be a warmup for the weight that feels heavy then. But the weight will always feel heavy or you're not lifting enough weight. Clear? -Rippetoe

    Because my weight went from 175lbs to 200lbs and my bf from 15% to 22%. I hope that if i bring down those numbers i'll be getting back my vertical.
