Ramen mummy : This guy doesn’t need that jumping thing in the swimming pool he can just jump and it’ll be high 😂

John Ames : As they say it's popularized by CrossShit, it's a useless exercise which only shows that you can raise your legs high but can have a very average jump. It's great for social media which is why people do it. Again, it's one of those useless things for social media that sort of looks impressive but when you think about it it's actually stupid. It's just a matter of how high you can lift your legs. Great for instagram thots because most of them have very average jumps but girls usually have excellent flexibility so a instagram thot could easily learn to do a 48 inch "jump" (aka leg raise). You don't see real athletes do this nonsense because they are trying to be champions at something worthwhile. The cross fit rejects (yes they are just people who can't make pro level) love to show how they workout to be good at working out.
