Description

The Standing long jump, also called the Broad Jump, is a common and easy to administer test of explosive leg power.

 

How to do Standing Broad Jump:

 

- 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.
