NBA Basketball Player Reaches His Peak

When Kyle Korver wanted to get better, faster and reach his peak on the basketball court, he started doing MISOGIS.

They had more than a 50% chance of failure.

The first one was paddling with buddies to the Channel Islands in Santa Barbara and back, a 27 mile MISOGI. He fell within the first five minutes.

Next came running 85 pound rocks underwater with friends in the shark infested waters of Santa Barbara. Another  huge MISOGI for him. He ran a 5K in 5 hours.

Breathing? Well, that part was tough. But Kyle’s lung capacity, strength and endurance increased – and it showed up on the court.

Outside Magazine did a story about Kyle’s MISOGI mission. I know the guys he did the MISOGI with, because I train at The Lab, which was created by some of Kyle’s buddies, as an extension of P3, the professional athlete training building owned and run by the same.

Kyle went on to set a 3-point shooting record in 127 consecutive games the next season, breaking Dana Barros’s record of 89 games.

It’s been a great experience for Kyle, and it can be a great experience for you too.

A MISOGI can be any challenge you take that has a greater than 50% chance of failure.

It does not have to be a physical challenge.

Learn new language in a year.

Play an instrument.

Invent something.
