Broad Jump

Prescription: 
  • Stand tall with chest up, abs and butt on
  • Look straight forward
  • Initiate descent by pushing hips back and keeping your chest and eyes up
  • Synchronize arm back swing with hip dip
  • Make sure arms reach back to full extension as the hips hit peak tension in the dip
  • Explode out of the hole and take off in hollow body position
  • Allow the arms to lead the direction of the body
  • Stick the landing in partial squat and arms above eye level

Note: Work on finding the sweet spot on your broad jump. Too little lean in the initial take off will not get you far and too much will lead you to a face plant!
