Everything about jumping and sprinting and how to improve your performance
Triple jump timing is crucial - as the season approaches jumpers must not be out of touch with speed and long approaches. Don't become the king or queen of short approaches - give yourself plenty of time to get back down the run-up to near to or to your comp run-up. Failure to do so will leave you with conversion difficulties when it comes to your long run-up (not to mention the pressures of competition). Get confident and get your rhythm and the big jumps will come. What you do in your other workouts and in the training plan must be designed to make speed conversion easier... lots of run-up and take-off work... bounds with a long approach etc. Dial it up gradually but at the 'hot' end of the scale.
