Drop Landings for HJ with the correct leans, is what we are talking about. So by being tethered at the waist to a fixed object, she can land and freeze on her penult right and her plant left, each being a seperate drop landing exercise.
(Take the photo of her from the Trials I sent you, and magic marker a black line from her waist to the far standard)
Now as she adapts to the landings on penult, I am thinking about holding the other end of the cord rather than tieing it off. That way she can stick the penult and as she starts to involuntary concentric out of, I can drag her to the plant.
Eventually assuming adaptation and mastery, one could conceivablely jump to vertical out of all this but I dont invision this happening in real world.
Sticking the landing on penult, and stick landings on plant for “specific” strength is my goal. If she gets to where she nails the penult then the progression is like stated above.
All are ???stick the landing??? applications. If someone is consistently hitting the landing such that they start to show a quick flash of involuntary concentric, that is not a sign to raise the drop height, but rather it signals time to do something out of the landing. Like:
This assumes alot, but is the logical progression to my mind.
(twisted as it might be)
Could have some benefit to say kids that dont like to takeoff “too far away” from the bar. By getting tethered landing reps, with standards and a bar to look at while doing this, they might adjust to the depth perception???
Gotta keep thinking out of the box…
