I am slow, fat, and weak. Put those all together and you’ve got a terrible jumper, lol. Something I already knew. Can’t improve until I know what level I’m at though so here it is. Bodyweight was 219lbs. Jumping will improve my Highland Games throws to some extent. Or maybe I should say, plyometrics combined with technique work will improve my throws.
STANDING BROAD JUMP
-5’6″ on the 1st jump
-5’11” on the 2nd jump
-5’11” on the 3rd jump
*Notes: Even worse results than I estimated I’d get. My knees hurt during and afterwards, which isn’t a good sign since I rarely have any knee pain.
