Disclaimer: The above testimonial is NOT typical. The main thing this player was doing incorrectly was that he wasn’t running straight (thus adding distance to his run).

Another chapter dedicated to improving the power of your mind as it pertains to changing bad habits and improving your brain’s processing speed. Obviously, this will not only improve your running form and ability to get better jumps, but will also improve your performance in many other aspects of the game and in life.
