Title: Exceesive Pain
Post by: Chris Acuna on March 11, 2009, 11:42:38 AM
Hey everyone, I had another quick question. When I take a jump, large or small, all of a sudden my stomach feels like its about to rupture, eventually i just forget about the pain but when i stop and start again, it comes back. Anyone have an idea whats going on? Also, if you wanna share your pain stories be my guest

I think there was a little confusion in pave's post he was saying dont do any large jumps or falls due to strain put on your body. If you need to jump gaps thats fine so long as those gaps are not 12-20 feet height difference. 12 is what I do with a good landing and with momentum a roll. Some people wont take drops over 10 feet so its up to you how safe and how long you want your body to last you. Distance wise then jump as far as your body is capable of or you think you can do. Just trust your own instincts, and you'll know when something in the back of your head screams "FOR the love of matt damon dont jump". In terms of the pain I would not know, since im not a doctor nor do I know the human body very well, but you should go to the injuries section and talk to those guys there. There is at least 4 different guys there that know what the're talking about and can probably help you out.

P.S. you may ask why matt damon? Well its a funny story, you see...

Don't jump off of high things.  There is no reason to train at height.  Chris, you're hurting yourself by putting that much strain on your body.  If you can't box jump onto it, it's probably too high for you.
