Broad jump single vs double
« on: October 28, 2020, 03:05:13 pm »

I have been practicing and strengthening my broad jumps.

My single leg Broad jump for both legs is around 1.8m + a little more.

But my double leg Broad jump is only maxing at 2.4m.

It's hard for me to get further than this. Seems like my single leg jump is progressing only.
Warm up drills
   - a walk, b skip quick powerful switch (heel to hams focus), a runs, dribbles small to big to run, straight leg to runs (force, reflex, go up/forward). force to hit the ground before it hits the ground knee/hip is at 90 degrees.
   - acceleration: low heel recovery, shin angle low, drive legs back before hitting the ground and drive thighs/knee forward not up

Measuring reminder:
5 toe to heel steps = 148cm

what was the starting distance for each? for SL broad jump, what leg are you landing on? same as takeoff, or opposite?

By starting distance you mean when I first started training? 1.5m for right leg and 1.35m for left leg.

I land on the same leg as my take off leg.

yes that's what i meant, sorry to be unclear. there's a skill component involved, so it may be just that you had more to learn on the SL jump than DL jump and so progressed more quickly for that reason. in any event explosiveness/power seems (has always seemed) like something you ought to work on, and if you're going to use broad jumps as a tool then DL > SL.

I see.

My double leg is lacking way behind. Today i decided to hold on to dumbbells shoulder width high in front. Weight is 8.3kg each hand and with the ankle weights. Then after 5 reps I stopped the weights and just with ankle weights and then without weights.

Double leg was measured at 2.3m. Single leg was 1.87m.

I haven't been training the single leg broad jump, but probably from the sprint starts, that's what may have contributed to it, such as sprint step to 1 step as far as I can.

Will just stick with double leg then.

Also single leg jump, I land on one leg which is followed by other leg straight after less than a second difference, but with weight I land double leg, reduce stress.

But will need to find out how to improve my technique, my thought was add weight to improve. Will post a video and maybe you can let me know where I am going wrong in my technique and any others views are also welcome.

i don't think you should worry about technique. you're trying to get faster and you want to get more powerful as a means to that end. what's the point of getting better at broad jumps if the improvement is all from learning how to do broad jumps better? just try to jump farther every single time you jump. if you want to mix things up, you could add in loaded jumps and DL bounds. if you can get your hands on a sturdy medicine ball (they're not that expensive) do medicine ball throws.
