WHAT'S THE PLAN?
Each week we will be breaking down a complex movement so you can practice the elements and build it back up over time. Here Coach Chris runs through how to do the Standing Triple Jump.
This movement is often used as a test of explosive power i.e. reacting quickly from a static start. It is applicable to many sports that involve intermittant speed and strength responses like football, rugby, tennis, basketball.
We use this drill in our after school classes to train strength, lower body power and stability of the hips, knees and ankles, super important for kids development and injury prevention.
Phase 1: Tip "Its like landing in cement"
Stand on one leg and keep stable.
Hop on the same leg and wait until you are stable and not wobbling with the knee and ankle not moving. Then jump onto the other leg.
When stable, jump again to land on 2 feet.
When can I go to Phase 2?
When you can do this 10 times without wobbling around, move onto phase 2
