The landing is extremely important and can single handedly win or lose you a competition! Every inch counts and performing this phase can be very difficult. Below you'll find everything you need to know.
The Best Drill There Is!
The videos goes over my go-to drill to help my athletes understand the landing phase. This drill makes things extremely simple and can be used with almost any age level!
The first video gives a nice in-depth look at the drill and was done at a time when my athletes were still getting used to it.
The second video was done recently at a clinic that I coached and shows the athletes going through the motinos of the drill in a much percise manner. As well, I compared the motions done in the drill to that of an actual long jump done by a successful collegiate jumper.
I highly recommend trying it out if you are looking to either coach this phase, or are looking to perform the phase better as an athlete!
