Plain jane amazing...brawls, impossible shots, and weird thoughts

No need to explain. Just watch

Personally I think cocky, show boating punks are immature, insecure wimps that need to get put in their place. I think this is about what the situation called for.

It's also a good subject that I implement into the mental side of training with athletes. Many are sitting around planning how they're going to celebrate or react to good or bad circumstances during competition. This is without a doubt counter productive.
  1. First, you have to score the touchdown first......"You don't score until you score"......Anyone on that movie line? Anyone? But really, until something happens there is nothing to celebrate.
  2. Then as an athlete you don't have time to think, you have time to act and react. Simply put, thinking during competition is a kill switch to athletic success.
  3. Also, you're head needs to be in one place. Does an athlete act/react with show boating or over the top tantrums because he actually feels he wants to or because of friends, family (especially parents), or the crowd in general. It shows they're insecurities. It also shows that they have trouble being in the moment because they can't go on with the game. They have their screw up or the crowd in the back of their head. Either way, bad deal, and athlete is hampered completely due to mental state.

You can think what you want about this, real/fake. Watch both videos and you tell me.

And just in case that did not entice you enough, here is the view from the field.

Wouldn't be surprised if we see this in a nike or adidas ad pretty soon. But you might want to keep in mind it's not Lebron or Vick throwing the ball.

This last one just made me laugh. I'm sure it works fine. But you can think what you want.

Personally I am LMAO!!!!

You want great arms try some variations of rows, pushups, and pullups.
You want great legs get your glutes functioning properly and do some single leg box squats, single leg RDL's and get on a glute ham machine.
