Get off my chest!
It's also been quite a while since Teller worked any jump grids (well over a year I'd imagine) and I'm still looking at 20" vs 24" for him, so I packed my video camera and set up some grids.
In the first series the jumps are set to 24" spaced for one-stride, bounce, one-stride. When the jumps come down to 20" however, the spacing becomes bounce, bounce, bounce as he can extend in the spacing. It takes a couple of reps for him to bounce the grid, but once he does - HOLY ATHLETE Batman! It's a thing of beauty. He's a nice jumper at 24", he certainly does not look like he's struggling at 24", but those 20" jumps look so effortless for him!
