How Using a Foam Pad Can Increase Your Vertical

Yo Yo! What’s going on OTA Nation? Hope y’all are still out there grinding away at your goals and dreams. Keep up the great work! Today I wanted to share a little trick I like to use with my athletes that ultimately helps them increase their vertical. It involves using a simple foam pad… When we’re trying to increase our vertical, we’re working on our stretch-shortening cycle. And we’re always trying to eliminate time on our amortization(transition) phase, which is the time between the … [Read more...]

Vertical Jump Plateaus?

Yo! What’s good OTA Nation? How was the grind today? I know you gave it your all and pushed your limits on every single exercise, drill, and rep. I’ll give you heavy props for that. Anyway, I’ve been hearing from a lot of our athletes recently and they seem to be running into vertical jump plateaus.

Well, today you’ll find out my exact thoughts on this topic. See, growing up I was one of those kids that would spend countless hours doing calf raises or anything that would work my calves … [Read more...]

Jump High But Can’t Dunk

What’s good Overtime, Ever since I released my 44’ inch vertical jump video on youtube a few months ago I’ve gotten countless messages from athletes asking me why I haven’t released a dunk video yet. It’s funny how many people assume that somebody is a great dunker based off of his vertical jump. And in today’s video, I explain exactly why this assumption is dead wrong. What most people don’t understand is that dunking is a skill. Just like in baseball, you can be strong as a MF but a … [Read more...]

How to Train for a Higher Vertical

What’s going on OTA, So lately I’ve been getting a bunch of emails from athletes that want to get their hands on The Flight System, but aren’t able to afford it just yet. Which made me start thinking… There are all these athletes out there that want to increase their vertical jump but don’t know how. I mean I lay it out in TFS, but that’s an investment that some athletes can’t make. I understand that. So I decided to make a quick video where I outline the exact components … [Read more...]

I Spent the LAST YEAR on THIS for YOU

If you haven’t heard by now I’ve kinda had this little goal I’ve been trying to reach for a little while. Sometime last year I decided to come up with this outrageous goal to hit a 42” Vertical Jump. Now if you don’t know a 42” Vertical is pretty huge by professional athlete standards.  In fact, it’s in the upper 3 percentile of every NFL combine athlete to ever compete. But this is exactly the reason I chose this particular goal! I wanted to pick a goal that was “unreachable” and … [Read more...]

Top 10 Vertical Drills [#2 High Box Squat]

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 … [Read more...]
