Far from impressive...
I bet that if I had showed you this video and told you that I'd be dunking a few weeks later - you wouldn't believe me.
Honestly, you would probably laugh at me.
However, I did exactly just that.
All it took was a simple change to the way I was training my vertical jump.
You see - one of the biggest reasons I NEVER saw results in my vertical jump training is because I was the guy that tried everything.
I used to jump from program to program trying to figure out how to jump higher.
Crappy program, after crappy program, scam after scam - I left disappointed after every single one.
I still remember the pain, agony and depression that I used to feel after training everyday - only to see zero results.
I would embarrass myself in between pick-up games trying to throw alley oops to myself.
Who was I kidding?
I couldn’t even get the ball to the rim.
I had tried everything.
Well almost everything...
None of those programs worked for me.
I maybe gained an inch here or there...
But nothing that lasted and got me to where I wanted to be.
At the time, I was getting overlooked by coaches and scouts at every pro basketball exposure camp that I was going to.
Because I was just another small guard with skill.
There were hundreds of those at every camp I went to.
If you are small - you have to stand out.
You need more than skill.
Guess who were the guys getting chosen over me...
The little guys that could fly.
The ones that could change the momentum of a game with just one dunk.
The guys that were feared when they attacked the rim, which opened up the game for their teammates.
Coaches mostly wanted the big guys, the only small guards they would take were those that were “showstoppers”.
I wasn’t that.
