Discover Proper Takeoff Technique for the High Jump!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Tuesday, December 1, 2015

One of the most crucial aspects of clearing the bar on the high jump is taking off from the correct location. Gary Pepin, University of Nebraska head track coach, shows you the optimal takeoff locations for both males and females before explaining the body position and angles that lead to great jumps.

The Takeoff

Drill Summary: The ideal takeoff position for males and females is different. For females, the distance they should typically jump from is about 18″ to 36″ away from the crossbar. For males, the distance is about 36″ to 60″. The foot plant itself should be even with the standard or up to 18″ inside it. When taking off, look to drive the plant leg flat footed into a position where the rest of the body doesn’t go back down again (the athlete should already be compressed and ready to spring up). Keep the angle of the plant leg as straight as possible and explode up and over the bar.

Two time NCAA Champion and three time All-American at Oklahoma State University, Chris Perry, explains the importance of keeping knees wide as a leg rider. By being physical and maintaining wide knees, wrestlers will keep their opponent from high legging and maintain control on top.

Wide Knees

Drill Summary: When breaking the opponent down, bump into them and keep your knees wide while throwing your hips into their back. Make sure to keep your feet running forward and also focus on getting your opponent’s arm over their head.

Attack Out of Frontal Assault Position!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Saturday, October 17, 2015

Ken Chertow, three time NCAA All-American at Penn State University, loves to use the frontal assault position to control his opponents. Chertow knew he wasn’t the quickest wrestler, so he had to find other ways to shoot, and this position was one of the most effective for him due to its versatility. 

Frontal Assault Position

Drill Summary: The drilling wrestler begins this technique by sprawling on top of a partner. From there, the wrestler can get a front headlock, underhook, front quarter, snake and many other effective moves. Coach Chertow stresses using this position as a strong wrestler, as being aggressive is the key to success.
