Example text

Triple-jumpers who lack vertical undulations inherently alter the run and takeoff, compromising the jump. Mistakes such as exaggerated penultimate steps, lowering in the final steps, and excessively high hops are all maneuvers triple-jumpers frequently use to compensate for a lack of vertical undulation. Clearly, preserving these vertical undulations of the center of mass in the final few steps is crucial. Also, in the final steps, horizontal velocities are almost completely established. For this reason, the jumper should attempt to aggressively push the body upward with each final step.

It is suitable for both the hang and hitch-kick styles of jump. This drill should be used only with a very short run, perhaps as little as three steps (left, right, left). During the transition phase, the jump is initiated with very active arms. The lead arm moves forward and up to about eye level and is held at that position. The trailing arm is thrust back behind the hips and is nearly extended. Now the body is somewhat frozen, like a statue, with no forward rotation. The athlete maintains this position until landing.

This elicits the body’s flexion reflex, resulting in hip flexion that introduces even more pelvic misalignment. A forward movement of the thigh enables that side of the pelvis to move forward more freely into a position of good alignment. At takeoff, arm actions should increase in amplitude and coordinate smoothly with takeoff. Two types of arm movements are typically used at takeoff. In the first, the single-arm technique, the jumper leaves the board with the arms moving in the same alternating fashion displayed during the approach—one arm moving forward and the other backward.
