Ok your bounding is very good.
Speed needs work but 8.9 m/s is by far fast enough to jump far past 6 meters for sure. I know a few jumpers who have jumped 6.40m off 9 m/s. It is all based on strength at take off while at top speed. How much lift to you get during full approach jumps? How much lift is this compared with lift from shorter approach jumps.
What is the differnce in distance from you 6,8,10,12,14,16 stride jumps? At what point does the distance increase the smallest? These answers will help me determine what’s going on. Also, you can lose 30cm at landing easy. So how is your landing?
Thanks for taking the time to answer my ‘complicated questions’ 🙂
Here is a video from a long jump session. The last clip is of my 18,10m bounding.
What I feel I do wrong is that I get very low the last stride before take-off, and maybe that decreases the speed. It’s like I get ready for a double leg take-off. I also lose control in the air, and overrotate. But that’s just how I feel it is though. I don’t really know..
That problem only shows up when I jump from a longer approach than 10 strides. The first few jumps in the video is done from 6 and 8 strides, the last one is done from a full approach.
