Top 5 YouTube High Jump Videos...Incredible


I was working on a few technique tips I will be sending out here in the next few weeks and watching some YouTube videos to remind me of various jumping styles and though, "Hey, I bet everyone would like to watch some of these!"

So, without further delay, my 5 favorite high jump videos:

1) Javier Sotomayor, World Record 8'0.5" (2.45m)
How could I not include this one. The guy was incredible, clearing 2.4 so many times it's scary.

2) Stefan Holm, 7'10.5" (2.40m)
Stefan Holm is 5'11"...need I say more. Ridiculous, this guy has been on top of the high jumping scene for a long time.

3) Charles Austin, 7'10.5" (2.40m)
Sorry for the Aussies that are reading, but this one is a shout out the the guy whose picture hung in my high school locker. Here he is setting the American Record.

4) ABUSED GOAT, 7'4" (2.24m)
There are a ton of comments questioning the actual height, but either way, this dude has some serious ups and incredible in-air technique. It's like he is floating...I love watching this one.

5) Kajsa Bergqvist,6'10" (2.08m)
Gotta have a girl on here, they usually have dead-perfect form and Kajsa is no exception, seen here setting the world indoor record.

That's all for now, if any else has some favorites, let me know and I will include them in the next email. Speaking of which, I am preparing quite possibly the most important, valuable technique tips I have ever shared, so keep an eye out for those.
