Jumps Mobility

Main Page
The mobility needed for jumping is greater than for any of the other athletic events (apart from arguably hurdling) as the degree to which you move your body is greater.

As with other athletic events, however, you only need to be able to perform the range of movement required - you don't need to flexibility of a gymnast.

A good warm up, with dynamic stretches and the performance of drills which replicate the movements of your event in a controlled manor are the best way to prepare for training and competition.

After exercise static stretches of the most used muscles will help return them to the state they were before you used them.

If you don't have good flexibility then the occasional stand alone stretching session will help to improve your range of movement as might disciplines such as pilates and yoga.
