Let me take a step back to introduce myself first. My name is Jost and I’ve played many sports in my life before finding the ultimate thrill in dunking. I’ve always been fascinated by dunking, at first just watching other people. I instantly knew this is something I wanted to be able to do myself. Throwing down my first dunk on a legit rim to this day remains in me as my strongest sense of accomplishment. I fell in love with dunking. Since then I’ve always searched for a way to get better at it which meant not only practicing dunks, but trying to jump higher.
I’m not tall, 183cm/6’0”, and I’ve never been the most gifted jumper or athlete for that matter. I always knew a guy my age who would make all my efforts look simply laughable. I’ve been told I’m not capable of doing it, I’ve been mocked and discouraged countless times.
But I’ve always had a strong drive to prove to myself that I can do it. Even if I’m not the most gifted I always felt that I am going to find a way to get better.
I went through just about every popular »10 weeks, 10” gain on vertical« type of program you can find – through countless gimmicks, trial and errors.
As I’ve been going through my journey, I’ve been progressively learning about jumping and the human body. Through education and experience, delving deep into understanding the human body, I came to certain realisations about improving jumping and all-around athletic abilities. With understanding the key principles I’ve made huge gains applying them through properly structured training and the right mental attitude.
