Freak Scoring Machine: New Program By Damin Altizer & Adam Linkenauger

Freak Scoring Machine is the brand-new basketball training program by Damin Altizer and Adam Linkenauger.

This program won’t be available to the public until around mid-February, but I managed to get an advanced copy about a month ago to review.

I have to admit, I was very impressed with the program.

To begin with, Damin Altizer is a former Division 1 basketball player from the University of Virginia, where he won an ACC championship.

Adam Linkenauger is a former 7 time ACC high jump champion, and the creator of the best-selling Freak Jump Technique program.

These two are obviously very accomplished athletes, so they truly “walk the walk” (unlike many online wannabe trainers who have never really accomplished anything athletically).

Damin and Adam are also very accomplished trainers

They have successfully trained thousands of athletes from all over the world, both in-person and through their training programs.

They have also worked with players from all levels (kids to pros), so they are very experienced.

Here is our official Freak Scoring Machine review.

Free Body Weight Program That Only Takes 15-30 Mins Per Workout Reveals How To Jump Higher by Improving Your Stability, Strength, and Explosiveness

Hello Vertical jump zone readers!

This is Jacob Hiller, and I’m writing to you from Rwanda.

Recently I was training with a professional team here, and they have some real beasts out here!

The court we were training on had all the rims highered to 10’6” because they had been ripped down to many times.  But… they were still dunking on them.

The coach had invited me in to help the team do some strength training despite the fact that they didn’t have regular access to a great weight room.

This wasn’t a problem as I often help teams use bodyweight exercises to build stability, strength and explosiveness.

Before starting the session I asked the team who was their highest jumper, and they point to strong looking guard (6’4”) from the Congo; Mike…

Will Your Mental Toughness Hold You Back In 2011?

After a few days, as soon as we get your feedback, we will start overcoming those problems for you.

Some common problems I’ve noticed in most athletes are:

- Overcoming anxiety and nervousness before and during games.

- Fearing coaches, and fearing their reactions.

- Time management and productivity.

- Leadership problems.

- Body language and how to subliminally impress coaches and scouts with the way you carry yourself.

If you’re one of those rare players who isn’t having any trouble with the mental game right now, let me know as well.

Talk to you in the comments!

The NBA Bans The New “Concept 1″ Shoes From Athletic Propulsion Labs That Claims To Instantly Increase Your Vertical Jump

A new pair of shoes called “Concept 1′s” from a company called Athletic Propulsion Labs has been banned by the NBA.

These shoes cost $300 a pair and claim to increase your vertical jump by 3.5 inches or more, just by wearing them.

It’s supposed to make you jump higher by using a technology called “Load ‘N Launch”, a spring-like device installed on the soles of the shoes.

Now, this sounds fishy to me, so I did some digging, and found a cool video that puts the Concept 1′s to the test using real athletes…

The Embarrassing Truth About Most Athletes…

Today, I’m going to tell you the embarrassing truth about most athletes (including me, and most likely, you too)..

Here’s the embarrassing fact:

Most athletes don’t get ANY significant results with training programs.

Yup, it’s true.

Most athletes buy tons of training programs, but when all is said and done, they have NOTHING to show for it.

Did you know that most athletes (80-90%) NEVER finish any program they start?

Even worse, did you know that most athletes never even START programs they buy, and just let them gather dust on the shelf?

Let me tell you an embarrassing story about me…

Playing with a GIANT tarantula in Tikal, Guatemala

Wsup!

One of my goals this year is to connect with you (my valued reader) on a more personal level.

I constantly get emails that sound something like this:

“So Dan, you run a great blog and everything, and thanks for helping me jump higher, but other than talk about training stuff, what do you actually do?”

Well, this blog post will begin to answer that question, and you’ll be seeing more of my personal life on the blog…
