Get insight from the all-time most winningest track & field coach in Big 12 history, Gary Pepin. Coach Pepin has been the University Nebraska Track & Field Head Coach for 32 years. He has the experience and knowledge to propel your athletes to the next level. Take a look at some great exercises you can do to prepare for the high jump.
Once the take-off has been successfully executed, bar clearance becomes a matter of athlete perception and co-ordination. Coach Pepin shows you drills to help the athlete practice this, and how to execute properly over the bar actions.
Coach Pepin also teaches a number of drills to strengthen the athlete and to re-enforce the proper high jump technique. This includes the circle drill and the figure eight drill. All of these drills can be used either in the off-season or early in season to help develop your high jumpers!
