Concrete blocks - genius!! I'm gonna try those as I aint got anything else sturdy enough to jump on.

As for skinning my shins on them - I need to harden up a bit anyway.:proud:

Chris: Make sure to stack them in alternating orientation:

---- ----
|||| ||||
---- ----

Gives it a little more stability. You'll also find that each jump might shift the top blocks a little so you might have to re-adjust after 20-25 reps.

Another option using the wash cloth and duct tape would be to place a couple of towels over the top of the block, make sure the towels hang over the edges on all sides, then wrap duct tape around the sides. Tape would only touch the towel. Just an idea.

X Cloth
= Tape
| Block

Go to a carpet store and get some left over scrap. You may have to play around with different adhesives, but most insulation types will work.
