Works on the transition between the second bound and the final jump.
- You need a box that is 24 inches high and sturdy enough to handle a jumper’s leap.
How it Works
- Starting at the top of the box, the jumper puts his or her arms back, preparing as though they were about to bound forward.
- The bound takes place and the jumper lands on the right foot and immediately springs up, lifting the arms for momentum.
- At the apex of the jump, the jumper will reach up, swing the legs forward and then bring the arms down and behind for the landing.
- This action should be a fluid motion from start to finish so that the jumper keeps their overall momentum going forward for the best possible jump.
