Mike Jenkins Bumper Flip

Anybody ever try this? Mike got some tips? I'm thinking it has to be impossible for someone who is 5'5 155...lol

Re: Mike Jenkins Bumper Flip

Not with a 45, but with a yellow.

Btw, why is an adult male 155 anyway?

Re: Mike Jenkins Bumper Flip

If you have big enough hands to grip the 45 and the general strength to hold on to it is all technique.

He is flipping it much like snatch. Big pull to accelerate the plate then receives it at the moment of weightlessness at the top on the plate path.

I'm at home so I can't test it but I expect the catch at moment of weightlessness is the key. Then just decelerate the plate gently on the way down.
