Tip of the Week

Back it up! Back overs have jumpers stand with heels about eight inches from the edge of the pit. Have them drive and block their arms while jumping off of two feet. Teach dropping the head back to look at someone standing off of the back side of the pit, not jumping into the pit. Athletes should never be thinking about getting into the pit. Dropping the head will lift the hips to clear the bar.
