I just finished three weeks of Elite Athletic Training System's 1-Leg jumping program. Before I started, i could barely touch the bottom of the rim, and jumping off 1 leg just felt awkward. After doing the 1-leg jumping specific workouts from the program for 3 weeks, i went to test my jump today. I was surprised how much I had gained, over 2 inches. And jumping off 1 leg doesn't feel as weird now.

I also hit a huge milestone, i grabbed rim with both hands off a 1 leg jump for the first time in my life! never thought i'd do that. And this is only after 3 weeks of training.

My goal is to dunk off 1 leg before thanksgiving, ill have more videos up soon.

for anyone who is wondering, heres the link to the page of the program ive been doing. http://www.youtube.com/user/EliteAthl...

peace

The Elite Athletic Training System is the first athletic training program made designed to make you a complete athlete. Unlike other programs available, the Elite Athletic Training System is not built up with hype and random workouts. Our program is based on tested and proven training techniques unlike anything else available. This program will make you faster, stronger, more explosive, and jump out of the gym.

For more information on the system and what you will get with it, please send an email to eliteathletics23@yahoo.com providing your YouTube username. After doing this, you will immediately receive a PDF file in your inbox with all the information on what makes the Elite Athletic Training System superior to everything else on the market.

We will have new videos available soon, including videos showing how one athlete improved using our system. He is 5'8, white, and increased his vertical by 8 inches and now has a 41 inch vertical. Stay tuned for much more!







i dno, it's nothing major or anything but it cracks me up.. saying you've been 'using their program', then, they have a video only recently uploaded with YOU all in it, no website, and asks you to email them for the program.. how that makes any sense, i'll never know.

funny shit

another jump manual advert, this makes NO sense..

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdgAWzUlJ_4" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdgAWzUlJ_4</a>

he can barely touch rim, but, look at the description:

"Want to know how I improved my Vertical? http://bit.ly/fipIRy This ebook improved my
Vertical Jump by 14 inches and am now able to dunk just like Kobe Bryant Check it Out!"

hahahahaha

Well I have one power jumper at home, used it on the track quite a bit, and like 2 or 3 of my friends (Nightfly used it as well)... it's a decent piece of equipment in terms of overloading the movements a bit.

Used it with depth jumps and consecutive broad jumps, but it behaves better in vertical movements than in horizontal ones. Plus you can wrap it around your waist and do acceleration drills.

I don't know about the price, I got it for free so...

But it has it's uses, it's not that bad.

i was referring more to the ad, i love when these advertisers put in their commercials: "weightlifting never worked for me", it always starts with someone saying that..

"i tried all the different programs but nothing worked for me, UNTIL NOW..."

I had a slight chuckle about this to. I use the power jumper all the time with people I train. As Raptor said, it isn't a bad piece of equipment that is pretty versatile. However, dodgy marketing is dodgy marketing.  :-*

Well in a way, and I know I'm just saying this to say it, they COULD be honest. I know it's marketing and they aren't, but if you take a guy who's totally unreactive and bad at jumping and who does lift weights all day long, and put him to do plyos with the power jumper, he COULD say "weightlifting never worked for me" and that he increased his jump with the powerjumper (and actually, with the plyos).

Would he have increased his jump doing plyos without it? Of course. But that doesn't negate the possibility.

That dude looks so fucking weird and wrong, on so many different levels, that I didn't notice what looks like a tumour growing on his bicep. That shit ain't right. I can't understand any who thinks that shit looks attractive.
