Triple Jump: Three Cone Jump Drill
This is a triple jump over three cones used as a learning progression for triple jumpers. Notice the cone is knocked down for the athlete to have a visual cue of running through the hop phase of the triple jump. It's important for the athlete to maintain velocity through the take off of the triple jump and have a level take off as opposed to popping up like a long jump take off. After that, the athlete focuses on pushing vertical on the step and jump phase of the triple jump. The athlete should learn how to use big muscle groups firing down through the ground using their glute as opposed to pulling with their hamstring. This focus on minimal ground contact time will help the triple jumper maintain velocity through all three phases.
