8 Foot Jumping Bar

New trick…the 8 foot Jumping Bars! In the actual American Ninja Warrior competition the gap is only 6 feet, which is pretty easy once you’ve practiced it once or twice, but I’d previously never had a chance to try a longer distance and wanted to test myself. Who knows? They may widen the gap of the Jumping Bars in competition and knowing you can go farther than the standard 6 feet would really help with the confidence. So while at Chris Wilczewski’s gym The Warrior Lab in New Jersey I had the chance to try a Jumping Bar with an 8 feet gap, so I had to give it a shot. Fun!

No doubt my form can improve…a bigger swing and launch would mean I don’t have to be so stretched out for the catch, but I was pleased to get it all the same.
