Train Hard - Stay Humble

11 foot equal level dynamic precision I found the other day. I've only recently started pushing my dynamics over static precisions, and am still searching for the limits of how far I can get. 11 feet is definitely my biggest equal level, but you can see from my body position that I can still get further. After nailing it 20 times in a row it got pretty easy, but still required a lot more effort than it looks like.

Similar deal with the hop up.

For those of you who didn't know, a size 10 mens shoe is almost exactly 1 foot heal to toe, making it very easy to measure out distances on the fly.

@Austin: this is from San Francisco City College. Not an excellent spot, but definitely some entertaining challenges

This training leads to that practice.

Where's that spot. Looks solid

...that's very true, about illogical fears and how that can harm progression.

I was mainly pointing out how it seemed that in the first excercise the absence of risk could allow to work on maximal distance and multiple repetitions, while the second was "scary" enough to maybe require a bit more buffer, in terms of less than maximal height, or less repetitions.

Exercise #1 seems more of a journey, while #2 more of a destination...

Of course if plays a roll. "Scary," higher risk attempts require a lot more confidence and assessment to make sure you're not trying something too hard for your body. Most of the time, though, people use this excuse to never actually push themselves and always "play it safe," severally stunting their progression and never actually learning legitimate risk analysis and how to overcome illogical fear.

...sweet.

Would you say that the mental aspect of possible consequences if missing the hop up (compared to this very safe level precision) plays a role of any sort?
