I knew it was supposed to be shorter, but I had no idea it was supposed to be this much shorter. My penultimate isn’t as drastically short as this which is probably why I haven’t really seen any significant improvements in my jumps.
Look closely at Mike Powell’s penultimate. Is it supposed to be this much shorter than a regular stride?
I am always amazed at how much people are able to extract from low resolution & low frame rate videos shot from a bad angle… The single thing that strikes me from that video is the pronounced sideway plant of the penultimate.
Anyway, the penultimate (2nd last) stride is usually really long while the last stride is the short one.
