Tip of the Week

Some useful high jump drills for beginners and experienced jumpers: back overs from the ground and from a six inch box scissor kicks from five steps hurdle drills from five stepsjumps a low height from five or six steps

Practice warm-ups should mimic meet warm ups. Whatever sequence and combination of drills athletes do to prepare for practice jumping should be the same in type and duration as what they do for meets. Muscles have memory and you want to trigger the muscles that will tell your body to run, lean away, drive, block, and layout.
