PurposeJumpers practice their takeoff and going over the bar with a “back-over.”
- Run the drill at the high jump apparatus.
How it Works
- Jumper takes four steps and jumps off a box to go over the high jump bar.
- Jumper can also use a six-step and an eight-step approach.
- Look for jumper to achieve full extension off the box with big amplitude at the hips.
- Make sure jumper is fully extending the takeoff leg on the jump.
