Sports Training Fitness How to Improve Long Jump Techniques
Hello my name is Carlos Davila and I am apersonal trainer here in New York City. In this clip we are going to talk about improvingtechniques for the long jump. The three principles that you want to focus on with the long jumpare your acceleration, your explosiveness and your landing so with acceleration youare going to practice a lot of sprinting type motions where you are just exploding out ofthe block. As far as your explosiveness since you are going to be exploding off of the legon the long jump you want to do a lot of one leg squats to help you increase explosivenessand make them pylometric. With the landing you want to focus on landing with both legsso squat hops are a good way to help you get
into the habit of landing correctly with bothlegs. So once again you want to focus on your acceleration, your explosiveness and yourlanding. Once again this is Carlos Davila, personal trainer in New York City.
