hey i need help with high jump.this track season i wasn’t even able to compete because my my high jump height was too low. it was my first year ever in a school sport. im a junior in high school.i really want to compete next track season and not only do i want to compete i want to make varsity. the main event i really want to focus on is high jump.
since season is over i don’t have access to a high jump mat so what should i do. also what kind of lifts should i do to start preparing myself for next year. i really need to increase my strength and power. what kind of lowerbody lifts should i do and what kind of upperbody lifts should i do.im really weak and i just started lifting more often than before.
i already have a sprint routine i do i just have no idea how to really train for high jump since i don’t have a high jump mat and that i was terrible at it.
my pb in high jump was 5ft. varsity jumps atleast 6ft. this track season i tried many events but i decided to stick with high jump since my school doesn’t have that many high jumpers and it felt easier for me to do then the other events.
This season i was just terrible. next season needs to be better.
