The Water Jump1) The water jump is really similar to a layup in basketball. Think of the last two to three steps before a layup. Youre jumping off with some power when you are finally going into the air. Your body has to be in control to be able to make the basket, and you have to be very aware of what every piece of your body is doing. You need power, you need control, you need to be smooth, you have to be present and then leap.

The scary situation is when you overshoot the barrier a little bit and just your heel catches it. The heel doesnt have any of the metal spikes sticking out, so all of that grip really comes from the four or five metal spikes on the forefoot of your spike plate.The Water Jump3) Ive found that whether I hit the barrier on the front side or on top or the far side of it, as long as my spikes are touching it, I can adapt. Typically I shoot to probably hit the top of it, but I think as long as my heel isnt the first thing to touch it, then Im in business. Then Im OK.The Water Jump4) Im lucky that I can jump off the barrier with either leg. Typically an athlete has a leg that they prefer, but from the very first time I tried it, both legs came naturally to me. Thats a good quality to have just because of the traffic approaching a barrier. If you have a leg that is favored sometimes it can be a little bit difficult to guarantee that that leg will be the one that you jump off of. So I switch both legs and dont have a leg that I prefer, and I couldnt even tell you which leg I land on more than the other.The Water Jump5) When Im trying to protect myself in the air from the carnage happening in the water jump, sometimes Ive had to change my trajectory midair. I see someone has fallen in front of me and I have to use my foot in to press off the barrier a little bit more to one side of my foot to try and change my angle off the barrier to avoid the person who is down in the water in front of me. So sometimes its pushing off a little bit more on one angle, pushing off a little bit more on the inside of my foot or pushing off a little bit more on the outside to change the launch angle off the barrier. And other times its just making suure that your elbows are out, making sure no one is going to crash in on you. China Nets Jerseys. The Water Jump6) I dont know my launch angle. Ive never sat down and really studied with video analysis and looked over the perfect launch angle. Its important to have power coming off of it, so athletes stay pretty compressed and pretty low and some athletes fly pretty high. I think each athlete has their sweet spot, and I cant even really articulate what mine is -- it just feels very normal to me.The Water Jump7) Beginner steeplechasers are often a little intimidated and they come off the water jump and they land with two feet which completely stops any forward momentum built from propelling off the jump. Thats what I would say is the biggest mistake that beginners do -- and they know its a mistake and they arent trying to land with two feet. So definitely try to land on one foot in stride.The Water Jump8) The ideal way to land the water jump is to land with one foot first and then another foot to be able to kind of run out of the water. I think a lot of people who land two feet lose so much time. So make sure youre able to land with one foot and then the other in a running motion.The Water Jump9) When not fatigued, its possible in practice to clear the water jump, but in a race scenario, its nearly impossible and not very practical to clear the water jump. For fun in practice, Ive probably done it once or twice, and it takes a lot of effort, so its not practical for a race.The Water Jump10) Dont be intimidated by the water jump: Its what makes the steeplechase interesting. Really approach it with excitement and energy and try to be as smooth and as controlled as possible in the approach, in the air, in the landing. Thats really important. I think a lot of people overthink technical aspects of it and sometimes people might practice with specific markers or specific metrics in mind. But I think whats important is to find a rhythm that feels right with your body. Prev NextThe water jump plays a huge role in the race -- mainly because thats where a lot of the chaos happens. Thats when people trip and fall and big moves are made.Emma Coburn Cheap NFL Hoodies Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Jerseys NFL China Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '
