Best Podcast Ever

Perfect for anybody curious about highly intellectual, informed, intense athletic training mostly specific to basketball and dunking. John and Isaiah are extremely knowledgeable and fun to listen to. This podcast has helped me jump higher, eat better, reduce and rehab injuries, get stronger, and countless other benefits related to training. A great balance of valuable insight from experts and also some laughs along the way. Thank you guys!

A Real One

John Evans is a talker but he is earnest, humble and knows his stuff. He is and has always been a sponge but knows how to synthesize information and apply it. Continued success John, happy to see how far you’ve come and that you broke away from Athletic Lab.
