The Approach Run For Long Jumping

1. Run-up pace is one of the maximum critical factors determining the leaping distance.
2. Almost ALL properly lengthy jumpers possess extremely good velocity capacities
3. It is not possible to leap actually long distances if the jumper isn’t always able to run speedily.
4. All jumpers ought to make complete use of their pace capacity in the run-up’ at the same time as looking to improve their maximal speed potential.
Five. Many long jumpers do now not attain their maximal or near maximal pace all through the run-up for a ramification of reasons. One of my predominant education obligations is to locate the causes of a gradual run-up and attempt to help jumpers to do away with them at some stage in education. I believe in emphasizing the following elements:-

SOME OF THE MAJOR ASPECTS THAT NEED TO BE HIGHLIGHTED ARE:-

The Running Form: The long bounce is quite distinct from sprinting. The intention of the run-up isn’t always most effective to develop an excessive speed but additionally to put together all elements for an efficient take-off.

Good jogging shape is essential for jogging fast. It requires a complete extension of the using leg and a higher knee raise of the free leg, comfortable and rhythmic movements, going for walks tall even before the take-off, a linear movement of all elements and many others. These elements have to be strictly pressured throughout education.

Appropriate Distance: According to scientific studies, maximum sprinters attain their maximal speed at approximately 50-60m after the start, however near maximal values can be recorded at about 35 meters. Some lengthy jumpers can reach their maximal pace over shorter distances by using the use of a walk-in or jog-in.

Since the purpose of the lengthy leap is to leap as ways as viable, in place of best attain maximal speed, we ought to compromise a touch. The purpose isn’t best to generate maximal run-up velocity, however also to take-off correctly at the end of the run-up. So, we ought to pick the best run-up distance for every person jumper consistent with his/her acceleration ability, speed stage, and schooling degree.

The remaining is very critical because a quick approach consequences in an inefficient development of horizontal speed and could result in a posture position that interferes with the take-off efficiency. On the opposite hand, if the technique is simply too long, the jumper tends to gradual down earlier than the board. So, the suitable run-up distance is a key aspect to make sure that the jumper can expand maximal possible horizontal velocity over the past two strides, whilst taking off well. Usually, the run-up distance should be inside a 35m to 45m
variety.

The Run Up Rhythm: The long bounce run-up should have its specific rhythm, which isn’t like the sprinting rhythm. Regardless of a few differences in the fee of acceleration, almost all top jumpers attain their maximal stride frequency inside the ultimate strides, which is the prerequisite for an energetic, powerful and speedy take-off. This is a completely crucial aspect of the run-up and must be emphasized inside the development of the run-up. I deal with these problems by way of no longer handiest performing the whole run-up practice but by means of strolling downhill for 20m then shifting to a flat 10m run-in.

This ultimate 10m is marked and jumpers are asked to imagine that the marker shows the board and signifies the want to boom stride frequency. Another drill is to vicinity stride period markers at the song or the lengthy bounce runway consistent with the wishes of the jumper. The distances between the markers are lengthened and then shortened steadily to initiate the real run-up rhythm. The total distance could be around 40 meters.

The above-mentioned drills are very helpful in the development of an amazing run-up rhythm. However, it’s far essential to understand that no sizeable shortening of the stride duration should take location inside the very last ranges of the run-up, while jumpers try and growth their stride frequency. It will in any other case lead to pace losses earlier than the take-off.
