Tip of the Week

Whether you hitch or hang while flying through the air, if the slowing of forward rotation is not accomplished, you will see it in the landing! Rarely is a poor landing simply the result of poor landing technique or practice. Landing preparation for the in the long jump should begin near the peak of flight.

The torso should remain upright, arms sweep downward, fully extended until the hands are near the hips. Legs should extend out in front of the body and upon impact, knees should flex forward to continue forward movement.
