I wanted to start out by saying thank you for following along so far, as I believe that over time this website will become one of the best and truest resources for information about living an overall healthy life, that any of you can find!
Essentially, the bulk of my desire to start this website comes from one simple Bruce Lee “motto.” Bruce Lee advocated that you:
- Research Your Own Experience
- Absorb What is Useful
- Reject What is Useless
- Add What is Specifically Your Own
Personally, I have attempted to embrace this philosophy in as many ways in my life as possible. Why? Simply because it works, and it helps!
For the first time, you are now getting to see the second “phase” of my website, where I hope to advance the information I am bringing you- even more!
One of my biggest overall goals when starting this was to be able to compile information which people actually need, so I figured who better to help with this than people I know who have already made a name for themselves in either athletics OR athletic/personal training, right?
Throughout the course of the summer and moving forward I will be working with these people to learn more about a specific part of their own training (or how they train someone else), which they feel has been more effective than anything else in helping them become successful in athletic(s).
Of course, I will be testing out every ounce of advice I find (myself), and reviewing it as well!
Our first athlete “expose” will be with a former teammate of mine who I can say without a doubt is one of, if not the, most athletic players I have ever played with. It’s not often that you see a basketball player (or anyone for that matter), squat over 400lbs FOR REPS! But, I have seen this happen with my own eyes!
Hailing from Vicksburg, Mississippi, Mychal Ammons of the University of South Alabama stands about 6’6”, weighing in the neighborhood of 235lbs.
As I mentioned before, Myke and I played our respective first professional seasons together with Feni Industries in Macedonia, where he then moved to the NBA D-League, playing this season with the Idaho Stampede.
In the coming weeks Myke will be showing us some of his favorite workouts to increase his speed and vertical jump! For now, check out his highlight tapes from the past two seasons, and get to know a little bit about why I am asking for his advice!
Stay tuned as we will be bringing you continuous tips and tricks to help you improve whether it be as a professional athlete, or someone just looking to live a healthier and more active life!
