BJ Penn's take on box jumps

Has anyone seen this yet? I hope it's not a repost, but it's pretty cool and thought I'd share. Link is wfs.

Re: BJ Penn's take on box jumps

I saw this on another forum. I thought it was pretty sweet. When I go down the shore I try to jump out of the water and over waves. It never really works though.

Re: BJ Penn's take on box jumps

I saw that this morning and tried it this afternoon. I could barely get my gut to come out of the water.

Re: BJ Penn's take on box jumps

pretty impressive. i read somewhere about weightlifters cleaning and snatching with the barbell in water. i dont know how deep the water would need to be to be beneficial.

But it is easier for GSP to do it - due to the grease.

One steely eyed glare from Chuck Norris and the water jumps out of the pool.
