A little over a month ago our daughter Leah posted a video of Kyle jumping onto their countertop from a standing position. If you didn't see it, you can take a look here. We were all pretty amazed at his feat. Her 'P.S'. included a challenge for Nick and Marshal to video their attempts because she knew they would give it a try. I refused to be outdone...
To jump onto a counter top from a standing position requires that one be in outstanding physical shape and practice extensive mental conditioning. To demonstrate the latter, here I am preparing for the jump using the one legged Himalayan rooster style of preparation.
Below you see the completed jump. Unfortunately the videographer was unable to capture my jump, but the still photo shows the completed jump. Please ignore the climbing stool that the photographer somehow captured in this picture. I can verify that it was not used.
Please note that a true jumping master lands on a granite surface on his knees, not on one's feet as demonstrated by Nick. (Also note that no animals were harmed in the making of these photos and video, and we did this at our own risk.)
Hope this gives you a good chuckle. Have a great weekend and please send videos of any attempts to duplicate this stunt!
