Jonathan Edwards, Triple Jump beast
this guy is a monster! triple jump world record holder
he ran 10.48 according to wikipedia, which is'nt valid but the only source i found

I just looked into him trying to wonder if he was naturally strong or he lifted or something
he only weighs around 160

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonathan_Edwards_(athlete)

^^not valid but best i could find quickly^^

anyone got anything else on him?

I am guessing he is super reactive in strength,

i once herd of the "iron leg" that triple jumpers develope because of the force, but this event is just like running one leg jump in bball and what not

any1 know his standing vertical and running vertical?



^^^^^i am reposting this hear because we were all amped up about the first white guy to break 10seconds in 100m, well here is another white guy who kills in jumping^^^^^^

Weightlifting was a big part of Jonathan Edwards training..he was a best in the weightroom..he powercleaned 140kg at 70kg bodyweight so a 2xBW powerclean..he had a very impressive bench also. he squatted until 1994 then he stopped and only focused on olympic lifts..his squat was around 200kg these numbers are unbeleivable for a track athlete..i have a few articles which i will post here when i find them.. the year he broke the WR alot of his training focused on the olympic lifts clean and snatch..it remarkable how strong he was considering how skinny he was..Carl Johnson trained where they focused on low reps 1-4..not sure about his vertical..his best broad jump is 3.14m

nice, thanks for those posts..

i have no idea about his training or anything, i've only read a few excerpts and saw one youtube video of him training..

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hAC1qLiJSA8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hAC1qLiJSA8</a>

what a beast triple jump.. that's one of my favorite videos.



here's some video of him training:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wY1jyoFJ76U" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wY1jyoFJ76U</a>

check at 2:20, this is what i was talking about in your journal, and other people's journals... using a mindset during lifting to help translate to the track and vice versa.

In my humble opinion , self-sarcasm is a huge evidence of humor which is a huge evidence of intelligence.

Edit : don't be mistaken people , somehow all this is absolutely relevant with Jonathan Edwards :D :D :D
woot

I cannot tell if that is sarcasm.

Just to make this relevant, here's a thread about Jonny E's weight training on Charlie Francis.

Yeah sorry to distract. Didn't mean to imply that you were being an asshole, at least not more so than I generally am about words with friends/coworkers.  :D Almost got into a fight with my boss a little while ago about a sentence she'd written. Note to everyone: Do not criticize your boss's grammar, especially when your boss was an English teacher before switching professions. I was right, though, haha.

Anyway, hijack over. Sorry about that.

Oh no, I didn't mean to imply that you were calling me an asshole at all!

My own post in another thread prompted me to change my text.

Words are awesome.
