also for you i would focus on speed, having a poor lj vs tj usually means ur getting by on just natural strength/jumping ability with limited speed. follow a simple gpp sprint program like utfootball and bust ur arse.
mmmm What About Jonathan Edwards, He run is best 100m in 10.45, also his best LJ was 7.45 m I think, and it's triple was 18.29 and 18.49w
anyway I think that maybe the problem is that I just didn't have enough speed, my 100 PB is 11.59…so it's normal that speed with my LJ ??
Speed always helps in my opinion. However it's hard to give advice without seeing you jump. Here are some interesting things:
-Willie Banks claims his PB in the 100m was 11.0.
-Sam Okantey jumped at a meet I was at this year. He jumped like 15.50 (51'). His takeoff velocity could not have been more than 9m/s. Slow as hell but superb jumping power.
– I once had a 23' long jumper who's PB in the 100m was 12.00 and 6.86 55m
