Standing Long Jump (height adjusted)

Standing Long Jump (height adjusted)

Must use a tape measure and a second person is needed to film and measure. Lay tape measure on ground to the side of you extended as far as you need it to be. put a piece of tape at 0". Jump as far as you can....BUT, after you land, you can't move. This is where the 2nd person comes in and marks the spot against the tape measure. Take your measurement in inches and divide it by your height in inches. Example: 84" jump by a 65" person = 1.29 84" jump by a 76" person = 1.11 again,...   more details

  • profile pic i see what ur saying but no, its not correct....the measurement is toes to heels....everyone starts with their toes on the line...you jump as far as u can and mark ur heels, if i did it your way id def be in second place, maybe even first. by AngeloBorreggine on 2/26/2011 2:27:00 PM

  • profile pic I measured toe to toe (if you see what I mean), so should still be ok. by JonHall on 2/25/2011 4:44:00 PM

  • profile pic oooooooor you could leave it up and collect the points...... by AngeloBorreggine on 2/19/2011 12:45:00 AM

  • profile pic Nice jump Jon......you gotta put the card at you heels though. not you toes........that adds like 10 inches at least by AngeloBorreggine on 2/17/2011 2:03:00 AM

  • profile pic Im getting a little better with these......technique helps, ive been concentrating more on trying to pull my knees up as high as i can during the jump. by AngeloBorreggine on 2/16/2011 5:42:00 PM

  • profile pic Thanks man. Did this after a small back workout. Kept slipping cause of the carpet :S Think I might have some more but a strong squat helps. by Kage on 2/7/2011 1:15:00 AM

  • profile pic Damn.....nice jump Kage.........you prolly got a lil more in you too by AngeloBorreggine on 2/7/2011 12:21:00 AM

  • profile pic LOL. I'm sure you'll do it. I'm starting to get my jumping legs back. Surprising, I use to dunk in college ( didn't play bball, just pick up games), but then stopped playing for years. Now these challenges are getting me back to jumping form. I like it. by Bear on 1/28/2011 11:28:00 PM

  • profile pic Only 2nd! Got to hit 105" to beat you Bear. Not sure where I'm going to get that extra 13" from though! by ChrisStones on 1/28/2011 10:59:00 AM

  • profile pic video isn't the best, but I did my best with what I had. I put the business card behind my left heal. I think it was 102" but I gave it the benefit of the doubt and put 101". I'll do it again when I have a longer tape measure..borrowed that 60" one from my gym. by Bear on 1/25/2011 12:37:00 AM

    Good challenge mateYou could have done the calculations for us though by adding a field for height and a field for jump. This site allows you to do the most complicated of equations by Worthster on 1/24/2011 8:37:00 PM
