Haha. That’s not new. That’s what I had to do all through college with the size of Bryan Clay minus the insane athletic ability.
I can tell you that I would never coach someone to do it that way. The steep parabolic flight means that once you make touchdown you’re losing a lot of speed regardless of what you did in flight. The longer acceleration distance between hurdles doesn’t nearly compensate for this. And although it sounds intuitively logical that you can lengthen the path of acceleration running on the ground; that’s quickly outweighed by the loss of velocity that it takes to produce big takeoff angles and the added loss of landing from such a steep angle.
