TOPIC: optimal body weight
Sharing_ideas: I'm Derrick Murphy and I am a high jumper.. and I have
always been curious about and always wondered whether there was an optimal
body weight for high jumpers. I'm about 5'11 and 146 lbs and I've jumped
6'11 multiple times and have came close to clearing 7'0 and 7'1
heights.. However when I was able to do that I was way lighter.. I was
about 5'11 135-138 lbs so I'm just curious about that..
is when I was in high school I never had shin splints ever and it's
like right when I started in on college track and field it all
whats up..what am I doing wrong?
