that’s impressive! I think with that fly 10m ability you should long jump much further…especially because your strong as well. what’s your weakness in the LJ ?
Carrying the speed into the board. I get tight, short steps, and spend a lot of time on the board. I really need to get video on sometime, and allow some of you guys to just blast the hell out of my technique. My jumping problems do not manifest themselves in static (or even low speed) jumps – IE – VJ, SLJ, 4BJ, short approach long jumps – but show up in high ground contact times at takeoff on both LJ and HJ.
Case in point – I can jump 5.3-5.4 with a 8 step LJ and then 5.8-6.0 with a full approach. It should be about a meter difference.
