Skyler's big jump

You know that I can rarely pass the opportunity to put up a video of a big jump! Here is Skyler - who writes a superb blog - with a 55" box jump. (the still shows the vid sideways, but it plays normal.)

All in Vibrams too

Above and beyond, my friend. Thanks for the highlight!

That is some serious f*cking jump-hustle Skyler! Interesting technique as well. I normally jump from quite a static position - which in retrospect, seems a tad artificial and too restrained. I might see if I can use your method to break that 50!

Chris - have you seen Andreas Thordkildsen's jump below?

He is 6'2" tall and around 200lbs - yet can do an iron cross as well!
