Weekly Training Tip #31 - Tuck Knee Jumps

Tuck Knee Jumps can be done at home and are a great plyometric exercise. This exercise works on lowering ground contact time and rapid cycles of moving from full triple extensions to triple flexion at the hip knee and ankle respectively. This is useful because it simulates the joint actions seen during sprinting. To get into a good rhythm, the athlete must synchronize their arm swing while contacting the ground to minimize energy lost and maximize the efficiency of the following jump. We recommend performing this exercise in sets of 4-8 jumps in series with maximal intended jump height.
