Strength Training for Triple Jump by Lynn VanDyke

Strength Training for Triple Jump - The triple jump is a fantastic event to watch. The grace and the agility of these track stars is something that most of use can only dream of achieving.

But running and jumping isn't as easy as it seems. In fact, watching triple jump athletes is something that redefines the way that most of us look at training our bodies and we can all learn from that.

Realizing what you need

One of the main components of strength training for triple jump events is knowing what muscles are going to be used and movements you need to do. By watching others perform that jump, the athlete can see the complexity of the movements and how the legs move during the event.

The leg muscles are strained in several ways: moving toward the final jump, stopping quickly to repeat the jumps, and then moving in the air to get the longest distance in the sand.

All of the muscles in the legs are being used, but that's not the only part of the body in action. Strength training for triple jump events also has to include the practice of the jump as well as strengthening the core so that the body can move in a forward direction.

Toughening up the legs

There's a fine line to be drawn in strength training for triple jump. While you need to have strong legs, they also need to be flexible enough to be able to change their direction quickly. The triple jump consists of three jumps before finally landing in the sand and being measured for the overall length which determines the winner. The legs need to be strong enough to propel themselves forward as well as strong enough to propel in an upward motion.

To accomplish both of these goals, the athlete needs to create a strength training for triple jump program that includes plyometrics. Plyometrics is the application of jumping as a form of conditioning.

When you practice propelling yourself upwards, the muscles that are being used will condition themselves to work harder to accomplish this well. Better put, the more you practice jumping, the better you will become at it. This is also known as functional training.

Many athlete training centers have equipment or special weights that can be used to help with plyometric workouts for strength training for triple jump events.

Toughening up the core

And while you might be able to jump, you also need to be able to keep your self steady on the ground and in the air. To accomplish a well rounded strength training for triple jump routine, you need to work on your core muscles. Ways to strengthen your abs and core include yoga and Pilates, but can also include basic abdominal exercises and back exercises as well. The point is to create strength in your middle to help balance your overall movements.

Strength training for triple jump isn't just something that athletes alone can do you too can benefit from making sure that your legs are trained in several ways so that they're strong enough for anything.

The Frames - Fitzcarraldo - Album Track

Photos: Ryan Adams Live on KCRW (KCRW)

DJ Anne Litt perfectly summed up KCRW’s live session last night by saying “I’m
having my heart simultaneously broken and healed by Ryan Adams.” Watching Ryan
play a solo acoustic set was so special because it felt just like his music
sounds when you listen to it on record: like he’s playing it just for you.
That he’s unselfishly exposing the depths of his emotions so you can feel fine
about digging deep into yours. Clearly, I’m a super fan of Ryan Adams. And for
a super fan, this was an incredible set ...
