I am a high jumper.
Here are my stats
Standing vertical leap- 32"
Standing long jump- 9'6"
Running vertical- 44"
Running and hurdling straight over something- 5'3"
High Jump- 6'2"- average 6'
All from last year- my sophomore year in high school
You see my stats. Is there potential from just the abilities there I have listed to go higher by Improving my technique and approach? Is there enough jumping ability to go 6'6"?
I need some advice, because I need to know if I should focus more on my jumping or technique. My coach says that I am "sitting" over the bar right now. I just basically run and jump however I can. I am also not flexible at all, I can barley reach toes with my hands, and I can only hold a back bridge for 10 seconds because I feel so stiff. I dont have a specific jump coach, basically the older kids coached me my sophomore year and freshman year. I am a junior now.
