Are you long jumping? Watch the best…

The long jump is a full sprint with an explosive “high jump” at the end. It requires speed and accuracy. Watch for the jumper’s free leg drive: the thigh is nearly horizontal. See the powerful arm drive. Watch the full footed action off of the board. See the jumper taking off with his center of mass beyond the board. You will see hang and rotation techniques during the flight phase. But all of these world class jumpers have one thing in common–they have incredible vertical! See how high they are when they are at the peak of their flight.
