Oslo High Jump Group Sunday Training Week 4

Week 4 of OHG at Bislett indoors. We trained drills with a pole in the first phase too help the athletes focus on their leg movements while controlling their core not to twist. This also help me to see how much they twist easily. Stretching is combined with the skipping to train abs and keep the heart rate up. The jumping is just shot approach in a straight line and standing flop off a bench. The medicine ball work is basic movements for the abs and back as well as single leg work to train balance. The plyometrics are combined with ankle strength drills and are all small basic movements. This style pf Sunday training is inspired by Mike Dolby of Solihull High Jump Group, the drills are based on a the work of UK Olympic high jump coach Fuzz Ahmed and Dietmar Mogenburg who was 1984 Olympic Champ and world record holder at 2.39m. The plyometrics are based on Darcy Cummings work from Canada, the ankle drills I used with Norwegian long jump record holder, Magarete Renstrøm, to help build her ankle strength. The medicine ball work is also based on Mike Dolby´s routines.
