Depth leap


This progression is to provide more of an elastic and reactive execution than the normal countermove leap.

Starting position:

Begin in the same position as the depth jump.

Action sequence:

Drop or fall from from the elevated surface, landing in takeoff position, and initiate takeoff immediately upon touchdown. The leap is performed by gaining distance and height outward. The leap is a single, intense effort; therefore it is helpful to have a pit of sand or foam to cushion the landings.
