Title: Broad Jump
Post by: Mark Toorock on June 14, 2008, 04:23:58 AM
Measure your broad jump on flat ground. Start with your entire foot behind the line, jump as far as possible, measure the distance to whichever heel was closer to the start. Repeat 3 times and take the best measurement.

Ozzi 6-17-08 9'3"

(There is a gap in my house that is 9'8" on the dot but I took a few off from the tip of my foot sticking out at take off and a few more from my heal sticking out as well at landing.)

It is funny I find that when I jump from and to something I jump much more than if I just jumped on flat ground.

Jon Hurst - 3/10 - 6'7"

That's a 1'8" improvement in less than 6 months! Figured out that it really helps to focus on landing on the balls of your feet instead of heels or flat or whatever.

I didn't improve a ton it just turns out I was measuring toe to ankle so my broad jumps were much lower than they actually are so now that I figured that out turns out it's 7 feet.
Now I feel stupid LOL.

This is good for me because I am only four foot nine.

I wanna see that...

whenever i test my broad jumps it is always in my weightlifting gym, which has a rubber floor which gives for GREAT launches. but i would feel way  self concious bringing a tripod and camera into my gym... theres way to many people. altho if i went at like 2.a.m i could probably pull it off.

but anyways if you wanna see me do a 10'+ standing broad look at 1:13 in this video... there was a whole thread about that gap.

I can measure exactly, but I know it is greater than 8.5 feet and less than 9.5 feet. I think it might be something like 8' 11". This is a few days ago and I'm fairly out of shape. Compared to most people, my broad jump:long jump ratio is disproportionally large. My running long jump is crap, probably around only 1 foot further. I'll learn the techniques someday...

Hey, bio... is 10' the distance between the obstacles?
Title: Re: Broad Jump
Post by: Christian Greene on July 08, 2009, 03:59:31 PM
Yeah man the difference is that you land with your heels off of the edge and take off a little bit away from the edge either on precisions. Broad jump is measurement to where you land on the back of your heel. so i would like to see what your broad is on flat ground, not on a precision w/obstacles. my broad is 9.5 but i can easily hit 10 ft precisions, theres a difference

Some of these distances are crazy, I really need to work some more on my posterior chain. I still only do about a 8ft broad jump which is about average in this group of people but I would not mind hitting 8 and 5 with ease.
