Got 11 plates with 135lbs, 9.5lbs with 225lbs, 6 plates with 315lbs, and 3.5 plates with 405lbs. If you are like me and have been slept on all your life, give them something that they have to wake up for! Don't be someone who is going to accept the cards that life gave you. Give life back the cards because you should know your worth. So show everybody what you have to offer and someone will recognize that you're someone who deserves a chance. @athleticstandard
First jump was 68 inches, second jump was 77-78inches. Then I jumped 12 plates with 135lbs, 9.5 plates with 225lbs, 6 plates with 315lbs, and 3.5 plates with 405lbs. If you are like me and have been slept on all your life, give them something that they have to wake up for! Don't be someone who is going to accept the cards that life gave you. Give life back the cards because you should know your worth. So show everybody what you have to offer and someone will recognize that you're someone who deserves a chance. Like I always say, one day God will allow me to show my potential 🙏 @athleticstandard
Last year was the year I really started working on being explosive. Never seen boxes like these in my life until last year and thats when I started giving them a shot just to see how high I could get. Getting more explosive or being able to jump higher, run faster, or whatever the case may be, is not a sprint process. You have to stay consistent and over time you will see results. Anyone can start something, but how many can actually continue? But to those that are wondering about my foot. It is healing up fast and ill be back with in next week to start seeing what i can do. No cast, no boot, and no injury will stop the grind because there is always something else you can work on when you're injured. But its all about how bad do you want it. Words lie, actions don't. If you want something, you have to go get it.
This is by far the best fail I have even been out through. Like I always say, don't be afraid to fail, embrace it. I failed trying to jump this 76 inch jump, but when I hit the ground I was laughing because I knew I psyched out in the middle of the jump, but was happy I finally got a fail video to show. When you fall, plan to land on your back. Because if you can look up, you can get up. Be your own motivated and don't be afraid to fail. Those who have never failed before, have never tried anything new. But it all starts with you! Grind time! 💯✊
💥Tag a friend💥 I get asked frequently about what workouts do I recommend to help increase your vertical jump. Squats, Front squats, dead lifts, box jumps, dumbbell box jumps, weight box jumps, alternate lunges, jump lunges, split jump lunges (in video), and squat jumps with resistance bands and dumbbells (in video). All of these will help you jump higher, but there is more exercises that will also help but these are a few of the ones that I do. Not all, but some. Overall most importantly, you have to be consistent if you expect to see results soon. But it all starts with you and like always, it's grind time! 💯✊😤
💥Tag a friend💥 Today during my plyometric workout, I had my very first fail and boy did it hurt. It didn't hurt my back or anything, I just hit my heels pretty good on the ground, but that only motivated me to keep going. After that fall, I went crazy and was just jumping and flying everywhere. I couldn't let the pain hold me back. Like they say, you have to go through a little pain to appreciate an achievement that you have earned. I went higher today because I love the feeling of being uncomfortable, but at the same time I dislike it because it's uncomfortable. The fear factor is always high because of the risks I take, but that is nothing compared to the reward. But like always, it's grind time! 💯✊😤 @athleticstandard Oh and peep @rapstallion24 with the stage pose 💯✊😂
This summer has been crazy. After my first year of college I wanted to see what I was capable of doing and to see if I'm making any improvements. So I dedicated this summer to be the test for me to do so, and oh boy did I do some stuff I would have never thought I would do or even put myself through. I really set the standard high for myself, especially since I'm only 19 years old. But there is a reason why I did that. The reason is that when I reach 20 years old, I have to top what I achieved when I was 19 years old. Setting the bar high will only force myself to be better than I use to be. It's all about how bad do you want it. But like always, it's grind time! 💯✊😤
The feel of jumping off your vertical is truly uncomfortable. After getting past 50-62 inch mark, I was truly uncomfortable. I don't know why only one foot would come up, but I still got it. 64,65,66,67 inches only one foot would come up. I really do wish that I had the fail video. For once, I fell pretty hard and my heel was aching but I still wouldn't give up. It hurt, but pain is temporary. It's my last Friday back where I'm at and I had to make the best of it. Had an unexpected crowd today while I was jumping. I always jump at the gym, but today was a different day for sure. But like always, it's grind time 💯✊😤 @athleticstandard PS: Someone please massage my foot 😹😿
