2012 US Olympic Team Head Manager, Ken Brauman, takes you through a triple jump drill progression. There are three drills presented for athletes and coaches that start with a standing triple jump and then pushing the jumper back to three and five step approaches.
Each drill builds on the prior and demonstrates the basics to successful triple jump leg and arm actions. Requiring only three cones as target zones, the drills are best performed on a runway and into a sand pit to simulate the running surface and minimize stress on the legs at landing. Incorporating these drills into a pre-competition training phase will help the coach and athlete to lay the basis for a successful triple jump season.

Many are familiar with lower body lifts such as the deep squat, lunge walk, and squat jump but it is easy to forget the reasons for doing each drill. Former Olympic jump coach, Irving Schexnayder, explains in-depth what he calls the lower body “full range of motion” exercises.
This sequence would benefit the track coach seeking to maximize their weight room time as well as any coach looking to develop power in their athletes.
