Developing An Athletes High Jump Approach: Figure 8 Circle Drill

This is a figure 8 circle drill, a drill used in the high jump. This drill is important in developing an athletes approach. To set up this drill, place two circles side by side with a 12 foot radius (24 foot diameter) of each with the circles roughly 5 feet apart. The athlete should run around the circles in a figure 8 position. This drill teaches an athlete how to transition into the curve properly. When executing this drill, the athlete is forced into proper body lean from the straight segment of their approach, into the curve.
