The skill starts in a standing position, with the arms up. The gymnast should bend their legs and at the same time, lower their arms. Extend the legs explosively, and at the same time raise the arms up, performing a high straight jump from standing. During the landing, the gymnast should bend their legs and lower their arms to the level of their chest. During the flight, the body is straight, the head is in the middle position. A modification of this skill is a Tucked Jump (floor level #4 routine). In this skill, during the regrouping, the knees should approach the chest in a tight tuck.
Perform straight jumps in a row in the middle of the trampoline. The body should be exactly straight, with the arms raising during the uprise, and should lower sideways during the fall. The muscles of the legs and buttocks are squeezed. The head increases is in the middle position. The major scope is simultaneously raising the arms and rebounding from the tramp together. Both moves go together because it increases the height of the jump.
Have the gymnast do around 10 jumps in a row. The gymnast should jump from their toes with their legs and body straight. At the moment of the jump, the arms are up, slightly bent with their hands over their head. During the flight, the arms are bent, making a back circle.
The gymnast should do a couple of steps, hurdle, and rebound with their feet together. Follow the proper hurdle and rebound techniques.
The gymnast should perform a number of straight jumps in a row on a trampoline. The jumps should be consistent, with the gymnast landing on the center area of the trampoline each time. The gymnast should focus on their form.
This drill helps the gymnast learn a proper landing position. The gymnast should jump from a higher obstacle (resi mat, p-block, pommel horse, etc.) onto an 8 inch mat. They should practice their stick by bending their knees, keeping their arms in front of their shoulders, and their head forward.
Stack foam cubes close to the edge of the landing mat. The position of the cubes will depend on the gymnast’s run speed, and distance of the board. Gradually increase the height of the cubes as the gymnast improves the height of their jump. This drill helps motivate the gymnast to jump higher.
