By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Sunday, February 1, 2015

Long jump and triple jump coach Tim Cawley of Colorado State University uses this drill progression as the very first drill of the year for his horizontal jumpers, and continues using it throughout the year to promote the correct skills. Athletes will learn how to enhance their bodies’ capabilities to ensure maximum success in competition.

Stabilization Progression

Drill Summary: You will need two boxes to jump on for this drill progression. Athletes focus on stabilizing landings and depth jumps throughout the progression of the drill. Make sure to land flat footed, have the knees at a slight bend and get the arms back and ready to go. Coach Cawley stresses a triple extension through the hip, knee and ankle for proper technique.

Develop Your Triple Jump using a Great Progression Workout!

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.

Triple Jump Drill Progression

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.
