Are you triple jumping? Watch the best…

Study the technique.  Note that each phase of the jump is about the same distance.  The take off does not involve the same powerful leg drive as in the long jump–excessive height after take-off can be deadly. Watch the attack on the ground leading into the step phase (this is when the foot hits the ground after the takeoff. See that the foot hits the ground with a full-footed action. Can you see that the jumper is working on achieving more height on this second phase? Note how the jumper drives the knee to a horizontal. Note that the hop takeoff foot moves toward the gluteus maximus during flight. Note the body position during the step phase (2nd phase). Finally, watch the powerful jump phase–the third and final phase of the jump.  See how the jumper is now interested in maximizing height during the flight. Note the aggressive landing after the hang technique.
