This is not in the video but after she finishes her jumps she goes into a full on sprint to working on increasing speed.  The resistance is activating the muscles throughout this athlete’s body. She has to drive her knees up using her upper body and core for a quick explosive jump.  Notice how this athlete lands each jump showing stability and control.  She uses proper arm movements to help increase her momentum over the hurdle. Make sure to extend the hips and drive those knees in a smooth and quick motion.

Do not forget that this type of drill is designed for increasing speed, jump height, momentum and quick muscle activation.  The quicker the muscles activate the quicker the athlete will be on the track, field or court. Landing smoothly and in control will help prevent injury and allow the athlete to immediately accelerate into their next phase.Repetition – Repetition – Repetition – train those muscles the way you want them to perform.
