I’ve got a High Jumper on my team, but we don’t have a Jumps coach…He has been having a problem jumping “into” the bar. I’m not real sure what his problem is as I’m not very well-learned in the HJ. He has some real potential though as he’s gone 6-5 this year, but consistently only jumps 6-0 to 6-2. In fact this past week he’s been struggling at 5-10 which tells me something has to be mechanically wrong because that is a dramatic drop-off and 5-10 should not be difficult. He usually reaches the apex of his jump about a foot or two after he passes the bar, which we’ve tried correcting by changing where he takes off from, but he’s really struggling. If anyone has any suggestions I’d appreciate them as the end of the season is nearing.
