This was a few years ago. people wonder what the secret is to my jumping ability. as you can see my back has a little bit of power. how do i use my back strength to my advantage while i'm jumping? comment below if you think you figured it out.
by the way before some wise guy says something...my legs were shaking due to me having to stabilize my hamstrings. they needed to be a little bit stronger. but give me a break...i'm rowing 405lbs.
Let me start by saying @itwontworkunlessyoudo isn't a client of mine. i saw this post and said to myself, "how can you not be inspired by this"? she started at 310lbs and is now 144lbs! pretty impressive!! follow her lead...it won't work unless you do!
1. decide what you want
2. develop the knowledge and. skills so you can obtain it
@wesley_williams_ has some cool footage. the reason why i'm impressed is he clearly got his back involved for this jump which is great. but he doesn't fully extend his hip because when he takes off his glute isn't underneath him so some glute activation is lost. despite this both the height and distance is pretty impressive which is very cool.
@kingryang is an animal. as he pivots his hips he's using his obliques, gluteus, and lats with each punch. i wish we could see his legs so i can describe which muscles are being used as he pivots to each punch. but the speed on this young man is pretty impressive.
Check out @badurgovislam and this impressive video. his flexors in his hands and forearms are exceptionally strong. obviously his lat strength is up to the standard. he's also chosen to use a very proprioceptive rich environment. all and all very cool video.
