Hilarious picture shows J.J Watt fail at standing jump attempt

He may have ran riot in the NFL last season but Houston Texans defensive lineman J.J Watt has committed himself to getting even better in the off-season.

Watt quite famously bought himself a cabin in the woods in order to train away from civilization.

Watt hasn't rarely been seen by anyone during the off-season but has taken to social media in order to keep fans updated on his progress.

Watt proved to be a very real candidate for MVP last year but was unfortunately beaten out and he clearly won't let that happen.

The now previously highest paid defensive player in the league is determined to prove next year that he can do it all.

If he does however wish to prove that he is unstoppable, he clearly has a big hurdle that he now needs to climb.

Watt put some pictures of himself on Instagram which show that oh so rare of things, a J.J Watt failure.

Watt is clearly aiming high - quite literally as he has tried to jump over five foot in the air from a standing position.

A tall task for anyone but if there is any player in the NFL who can do it, you'd put your money on Watt.

Clearly a bit too much for the star defensive end however as he didn't quite make it and eventually just squashed his spotter.

Just a lineman?

Watt's commitment to his off-season preparations is admirable and it can largely be seen why he made so many headlines last season.

Watt didn't just have a great season on defense last year, he also had a great year as a receiver where he caught three touchdown passes.

Only actually taking three receptions, Watt scored three times and had a better scoring season than some other players at Wide Receiver - especially those from Kansas City.
