J.J. Watt signs with Reebox, completes new personal record 5'1" box jump
Houston Texans All-Pro defensive end J.J. Watt continues to show off his unbelievable athleticism, this time posting a personal best 5’1” on a box jump.
In a 30-second YouTube video posted by Reebok, Watt, who is 6’5’' and 290 pounds, attempts a personal record in the Reebok ZPump Fusion shoe and accomplishes it with relative ease.
Earlier, Reebok announced a partnership with the the three-time Pro Bowl defender.
Just last month, Watt tried the same 5’1” box jump with less than impressive results.
“For Reebok, JJ perfectly represents what it means to ‘Be More Human’ as he challenges himself to reach the absolute limits of what is possible,” Chris Waldeck, Vice President, Reebok US, said. “We saw him fail his first attempt at a 5’ 1” box jump, and we saw him try again until he accomplished it. That simple act - trying, failing, and trying again - locked it in for us.”
Last season, Watt recorded 59 total tackles, 20.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries and 10 passes defensed. He was named AP Defensive Player of the Year and earned his third first-team All Pro selection.
