    Another video in this continuing series following my Olympic development training group (HPC Elite). There’s some photos and videos in this one. This session took place on September 3, 2011. This particular day was a test day in which we tested the 150m, Standing Long Jump, Standing Triple Jump and power clean max.

    Mike sometimes takes awhile to get back to people and he is out of town…so just in case this gets buried and no reply…he doesn’t really regulate it with us. I always thought it would be better to go two footed then right left for STJ because my regular TJ was that way and also because I am right foot dominate but I am starting to rethink it. Another guy on our team will switch it up halfway through if he is not having success with one foot and will occasionally jump farther when he switches. I wonder what other people do for this or does it not really matter much?

    Personally, I don’t think it matters. I was just asking. Usually when I do my testing, I let the athletes do whatever comes naturally.
