One thing I noticed when watching Ninja Warrior obstacle courses is how important the height of the landing platform is. The lower to the ground the platform is, the easier it is to finish the obstacle. In this episode of Obstacle Lab I'll be demonstrating this concept to show why course designers should make sure to raise their landing platforms.
Also, to just to make things a little tougher, I decided to see what would happen if you replace the landing platform with a hurdle. It doesn't make things easier.
