PR in the SLJ, 3.52, one more inch and I equal SquatDr 🙂 I weigh 186.5 now, so that helped.
After a large number of short approach jumps, from 10m high knees approach as well as 10 step approach, I figured out a way to delay the landing mechanics. I noticed if I pull the swinging (left) leg back flexed, everything happens too damn quick and my legs end up in front of me at the very beginning of the descent and cause early forward lean. However, if I make sure the swinging leg is extended in front of me first and then swings back and flexes, similar to the hop phase in triple, my arms rotate with a smoother and gretaer amplitude, I am still upright at the beginning of the descent, my legs hit the ground at a more acute angle, and I land about a foot farther. The 10 step jumps were in the high 22′ range today, so no more discrepancies 🙂
