Fail to Succeed: Michael Jordan

A nice throwback to the days when the Bulls ruled the NBA. Some great lessons for young athletes.
As portrayed in this video, Michael Jordan was a hard training athlete. I heard first hand from the Bulls strength and conditioning coach at the time, Al Vermeil, that Michael could power clean 130 kg. in his prime. Al is the only professional S&C coach, so far as I know, who has won championships in both the NBA and NFL with the Bulls and the 49ers. His son, Lance, was a competitive lifter here in the U.S.  That is where I met Dick while coaching some of my lifters at the Junior Nationals. His brother Dick coached in the NFL as well.
