Today I built my very own high jump set. For a bar i used a 1 meter long radio antena, and for the holders i used car jack stands. Surprisingly this is the best set i’ve ever seen… The antena is unbreakable because it is extremley flexible. This means that the antena will slip out of the grooves on the jack stands, but not break.
Well anyways, this was my first day of real high jump training! At TOque this year i managed to clear 50cm… which is good for me. Today on the otherhand, i managed to clear 65cm !! and made it over 67cm (with falling). This is a 17cm improvment in a month and a half.
To achieve this, i have been practicing jumping with my seat out infront, and focusing on a quick pull up of the tire. I found that the quicker i can pull up the tire the higher i can jump…
Now my question is: To be able to jump 80cm+, is the trick to pull the seat up extremely fast??? Or is there a technique that i’m not useing? Can an experienced jumper help me out please??
