Jump Higher by Implementing the Weak-Leg Long Jump Drill!

By dustin.moscoso - Last updated: Monday, September 1, 2014

University of Southern California Assistant Track and Field Coach, Michael Pullins, shows you a drill that he uses at the end of a practice session anytime during the season. Coach Pullins uses this drill with his high jumpers, which includes two former All-Americans with one of them a former NCAA High Jump Champion. Coach Pullins discusses how the Weak-Leg Long Jump Drill causes greater contraction on the weak-leg which forces greater contraction on the take off foot.

Weak-Leg Long Jump Drill

The athletes run onto the long jump ramp and takeoff from their weak-leg and perform a long jump onto the high jump mat. This is a good drill for the end of practice to get more jumps in. Coach Pullins points out that this drill will cut down on the punishment the body takes during high jumping. This is a drill that can be done wherever you have a high jump mat and a long jump ramp.

Create a Better Team by Improving Focus!

Coach Rick McGuire presents a vital, but neglected skill that is critical to outstanding athletic performance – the skill of Focus! In this engaging and highly informative video, Coach McGuire, the former head track coach at the University of Missouri, explains and demonstrates how to teach your athletes the Skill of Focus.

Focus is important – but it is a skill that can be taught. Focus is “thinking right.” What is it that all coaches want? All coaches want their athletes to “show up” every day and for every drill in practice as well as in their race. This video is about how wrong thoughts hurt performance, while the right thoughts will enhance performance.
1) What is Focus?: Focus is a skill. Focus is a thought. Focus is controllable. Focus is a choice. You make the choice – you take control. You can learn this skill. This skill of Focus is the wellspring of peak performance – of being “in the zone,” of being “in the Flow!”
