What it do young athletes,

Today’s such a great day. I just got back from my morning walk while listening to one of the best audiobooks I’ve heard so far.

The name of the book is called The Strangest Secret by Earl Nightingale

It touches on why 95% of people on this earth never live up to their highest potential. There are way too many people that live within the status quo and never dream of breaking out of it.

One of the biggest takeaways from this book was that we become what we repeatedly think about.

Think about that for a second.

We BECOME what we REPEATEDLY think about

Now this might sound like some B.S. to some of you but that just means you’re in the 95 percentile of people on this earth.

You don’t want to be in the majority.

You’re NOT in the majority. You know why?

Cause you’re part of OTA.

We don’t accept average in this Squad. That’s not what we’re about.

Set a goal, it can be increasing your vertical jump, write it down on a piece of paper and constantly look at it. Fill your thoughts with positive imagery of your goal.

Whenever you start thinking negatively STOP YOURSELF.

Take a step back and acknowledge the negative thought. Then and only then can you replace it with a positive one.

Do this for 30 days straight and hit me up with how your life has changed.

Now on to the meat and potatoes of this post.

We’re approaching the second to last exercise of my new youtube series Top 10 Vertical Jump Drills. After the series is done you’ll get a chance get the best vertical jump program ever to hit the market.

#2 High Box Squat

The High Box Squat is number two on my list for a reason.

I really attribute this exercise for increasing my vertical when I was training for the combine a few years back.

By using a box higher than your usual box squat you get more sports specific and really mimic the descension of the vertical jump.

Not only that but you also get to overload this exercise with weight since the range of motion (ROM) is a lot less.

What this means is that you’ll teach your body to recruit more muscle fibers than it’s used too. Meaning more strength for a HIGHER VERTICAL JUMP.

Get ready for number 1 guys. It’s coming in a few days.

Holler at you next time,
