Yeah i’ve read a lot of old soviet jumps training very simular…jumping everyday etc…
The problem is, injuries are so common with that set up. It’s very hard to do pounding like that everyday. And you totally right about the triple jumpers. 100%, you DO NOT need to be fast at all to jump over 17m. 17m can be achieved easily running under 10m/s but 8 meters can not be achieved running that speed.
Yeah you are absolutely right on that. Curbans where shipped over to USSR to study their training and then reported it back and into their system. Yes I can attest, injurys are a problem because this kid is tweaking something every 3 weeks or so.
I saw it coming though when it was October and he was doing CRAZY box jumps, hurdle hops, weighted bounding, and phase work to cones. I was like “ok and where are you going to go from here.” But I guess, greater the risk the greater the reward. The Cubans are testament to that.
There are many kids in Cuba that don’t go to school or take classes on the computer. There are tons of kids in line to become the next great triple jumper. He said triple jump is becoming the national sport. For every 17m jumper they have, there are hundreds who get don’t pan out. He also said that they have already had consistent success at 17m and now the country’s goal is to have jumpers over 18m every year.
My athlete is doing the translating so it should be ok. I will post whatever he gives me though
Hope my email is full tomorrow….good night all
