If you’re a high school coach, chances are pretty good you’ve got at least a guy or two on the team that stands about 5 foot 1 inch tall, so that will help to put this video in perspective.
JJ Watt, the 6 foot 5 inch, 290 pound defensive end for the Texans, hit a new personal record recently with a standing box jump onto a platform 5 feet and 1 inch off the ground. Yeah…that’s just ridiculous.
We know how much coaches like to see ridiculous feats in the weightroom, so feast your eyes on this (complete with a plug for the new Reebok ZPumps).
If I’m an offensive tackle lining up across from Watt on Sundays, I’m going to have a hard time not playing this impressive display of explosiveness over and over in my head as the quarterback is going through the cadence.
Speaking of Watt, check out his quote from last July that you should share with your team.
