A 7.5 inch (19 cm) improvement on your broad jump in 5 weeks is a fantastic improvement, especially for an intermediate level athlete like Charles St. John, a coach at APEX Movement Denver and trainee in the first test run of my new 5 week power development program specifically designed for parkour athletes.
In the video, you will notice that during his final assessment, he is faster in and out of the hole (the countermovement at the beginning of the broad jump). You will also notice that the final assessment reveals slightly better hip extension, a straighter pike, and a deeper full squat. Jumping farther is not only about better technique and increased strength and power. We also emphasized stability and mobility training in Charles’ workouts resulting in less force leaked in the loading/ exploding stages of the jump and farther reaching ability on the landing stage. Solid effort Charles!
