Not bad @ all!!! definitely wouldn't say broken... as 90% of guys 1/2 ur age couldn't even come close to this!!! Great work!!! inspiration to keep rolling another 10+ years for me.

Re: seated box jumps

Nice. May have to try that at the beginning and end of my workout tomorrow and see how it goes. I'm a fan of boxes. They will get you winded quick doing hop up and down drills. Same for going up a whole set up bleachers at a big football stadium.

Re: seated box jumps

If you are new to box jumps, the most dangerous part is getting back down. I would put an extra step or two in there unless you are adapted to jumping down 48"+ repeatedly.

Re: seated box jumps

I've done plenty of boxes but thanks for the tip. I usually step down anyway, no need to put extra stress on my knees coming down in one jump from a decent height.

Re: seated box jumps

I like doing box jumps. I feel like they help my mountain biking, especially the short steep single track runs we have here. I feel I can just power through them without looking for another gear.
