What’s going on guys my name is Ahmad from aworkoftheheart.wordpress.com. Today, jumping is as big part of the game of basketball as dribbling is!

Maximizing the athlete’s performance is today an industry, even on the scientific level. But unfortunately, many times the correct information doesn’t always reach the athletes.
With the recent development of more powerful nutrients and better diets, designed to enhance the athlete’s performance, almost all sports have become more physical. Having the right diet together with a good coach is no longer an advantage, it’s a necessity! However, athletic ability is usually taken to be something you are either born with or not. For instance, some are born with the ability to jump high, others are not. As this might be true, it doesn’t mean that there is nothing you can do about it! Because there is!
