1 Do walks on toes and ball of feet.
2 Do hill sprints.
3 Lose mass you don’t need.
4 Start the jump on an exhale when possible (inhale as you bend and exhale when you spring up).
5 Swing your arms toward the target (forward or up for example).
6 Do a prep light jump to load the “spring” in the legs.
7 Aim in your mind beyond the target.
8 Work on springing to a straight hip spine relation by jumping from sitting on your shins to a squat.
9 Jump rope on one leg at a time and use a heavy rope like a climbing rope.
10 Work on strengthening your toes for the jump especially the big toe by pulling and pushing on a blanket on the ground with just your toes.
And give it time 🙂
