    Look what I spent 600.00 on :-p

    So, I've been wanting to purchase powerisers for a while now but keep talking myself out of it. If you don't know what powerisers or bocking is, then watch this video. You'll like it.

    YouTube - RoM Compilation

    I got them, thinking it would be easy...um, ya, I was f'n wrong. I have NO idea how they do flips. I can do flips and stuff but not with these, yet. They weigh 10lbs each and with in 5 minutes my calfs were burning haha.

    I can walk, jog and jump in place but not as high as everyone else. Soon. I will.

    They really are fun to use. You def need to use elbow pads and knee pads, cuz if you fall, its quite a fall and you cant bend your knees to catch your fall. right now I can only get like a foot off the ground. I have the next weight group then what I need so I'll be able to easily jump over 7ft once I can do it.

    height? I'd have to say 7 feet or a little taller. So when you jump, your head is really at 14ft (if you can get that high)

    I can barely walk LOL, although I could gain 20 lbs, that would be fine with me.

    BlackberryOS - did you order them from the UK? Tryin' to find a domestic (US) retailer and no luck...

    I've seen these before an thought "way cool!" but after watching the vid you posted I thought "too way cool to NOT!" so...

    Also - did you go with the 7-Leagues?

    I was out showing my mother them, didn't have any protection on at all because I wasn't going to do anything really, just show her the basics with them. I did a slow jog and one of the foot pads went into a crack (didnt think it would) and tripped me up..and boyyy what a fall that is from that height. My knee cap took the brunt force of the fall which now hurts like a mofo and scratched up my arm and wrists.

    I was one of those "Oh I wont fall" type of person...well, lesson learned and I will now ALWAYS wear knee pads and elbow pads.

    Thanks for the link! Looking at them now!

    Hope recovery doesn't take too long!
    I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.
