- Backflips and Jumps
Doing a backflip is hard enough. As Devonte pulls off numerous backflips in the video, he also accomplishes some jaw-dropping jumps over numerous objects and people. He regularly clears people who look 6-feet or taller. He doesn’t even graze a hair on their head. It’s astounding, and some special effects from Whistle Sports makes it even cooler.
- Jumping and Keeping Balance
It’s one thing for Wilson to hurdle over human beings who are standing straight up. It’s quite another to jump onto a stack of boxes that look to easily be 7-feet tall and stay up there. Devonte does this with ease, as you can see in the video.
- Underwater Treadmill
Running is a great way to increase your cardio. It gets the heart pumping and increases the strength in your legs. Looking for a tougher run? Do it underwater. Wilson is seen in this video running on an underwater treadmill at both 6 mph and 10 mph.
