    Reading this reminded me of my senior year in basketball way, way back in 1979. We all wanted to improve our vertical and first step, so our coach drug out this leather medicine ball that looked like it had been used in the 60’s by Soviet shot putters…outside. We laughed and thought, ‘what a dope’. Little did we know that that had we actually learned to use the medicine ball as part of an explosive training program, it would have been one of the best tools we had to achieve what we wanted. Some times old school is a lot smarter than the new math.
