High Jump

There are many ways of executing the high jump. They are scissors type, western roll, straddle roll, Fosbury Flop, etc. Among them, we have learned scissors type high jump in class 7. We will practice that as well as learn straddle jump. We need to practice step by step for high jump also.

Approach

If you are taking off on the left leg then the approach should be from the left side at 25 degree-35 degree angle. It is not good to take a long run for the high jump. Running from the 7-9 steps distance should be appropriate.

Take-Off

When we each near the cross bare, our take-off leg(left) should be near to it. At that times, the right leg should be kicked high up and the left leg should make an effort for take-off.

Flight

After the take-off, we will be in the air and the action done in the air in called flight. The take-off leg (left) should be kicked with an effort and the body should roll over the crossbar. Above the crossbar, the body looks as if it has been overturned. After that, we lift the legs over the crossbar for the high jump.

Landing

It looks as if the body in going to land on the right side of it after crossing the cross bar. This way the body lands flat on the ground. At this time, for a safe landing, the right arm should be bent and made it tight to roll on the shoulder.

When we practice this exercise we should line up on a line and start with a low height.The line should be according to the take-off foot whether it in left or right. The landing area should be soft and safe. The crash mats (landing mats) may or may not be available in all the schools so it in better to put fine sand in the landing pit. Once this high jump skill in properly achieved then the height of the crossbar should be increased gradually.
