Key Steps to Increasing the Distance of Your Long Jump
Dwight Phillips, 2004 Olympic Long Jump Gold Medalist and three time World Outdoor Champion, reviews the basics and techniques of the long jump. One of the most daunting challenges for a long jumper is to get into proper take-off position, transitioning from the run to the take-off. Jumpers either tend to "settle" down on the board, driving down; or they tend to come in too high and "crow hop" off the board. The penultimate step (the last step before take-off) is key here. Phillips has some unique ideas in terms of how to deal with this. The most important aspect of the penultimate step is to set your body up for a successful jump.

Long jump techniques
NOTE: First time trying the 1 1/2 hitch-kick. I did it on the wrong foot (left) as a coordination drill. I usually use the Sail technique, but i'm considering changing to the Hang next season. Any tips or advices?

Speed Training - Sprint Faster In 14 Days
http://www.SpeedTrainingChallenge.com - For free speed training instructions. For speed fast muscles are just as important as strong muscles - yet making your muscles faster is often overlooked. Strong muscles are important but when they are also fast that is when you explode past your opponent. Speed Training Challenge website http://www.SpeedTrainingChallenge.com Muscle speed is accomplished by conditioning your fast twitch muscle fibers for their natural ability to contract with amazing speed. Whether your sport is football, soccer, track, baseball or basketball, fast muscle contraction speed cannot be accomplished with the same workouts used for muscle strength. Speed training with resistance bands and isometrics using short training sessions is a very effective way to isolate and condition your fast twitch fibers for speed - and to develop faster sprint speed and running speed than ever before. Training all of the muscles used in the runnning process for faster sprint speed will help you run faster ans is often overlooked in many speed training programs. For example your hip or thigh flexor muscles are a primary muscle group involved in sprinting. The hip flexors are among the strongest muscle groups in the body and crucial for you to sprint at your fastest speeds. Yet they are still found to be under developed far below their full potential in most athletes. This is mostly because many people are unaware of their function and importance and because there are few,if any, machines at the gym that will strengthen these muscles. The only way that I have ever been able to effectively isolate the thigh flexors is with resistance bands. The only way I have ever been able to increase the speed of these muscles is with isometric training. And remember - being fast is not the same as being strong. You will need fast muscles to dramatically improve your sprint speed, run faster, and become the best athlete possible.
