Recommended Posts

Hi,

I will be taking my IPPT next month. I am looking for advice as to how to improve my Standing Board Jump. This is my weakest station. Most of the time, I did not pass my ippt bcos of this station. Any advice on this…

tuck jumps help. but most important is probably ur technique of jumping. u shd get a buddy to watch u jump. ur buddy may be able to point out what u are doing wrong when u jump.

i agree that technique plays an important part for SBJ...

of course your weight and power are the other factors that affect the outcome...

i am quite good at SBJ - i can demo upon request...:)

however i feel that an all-out jump is quite damaging to the joints upon landing - so you may want to reserve it for ippt test only

Thks for your valuable advice..Hope to meet you one day during those marathon run...O ya... mi dun have any power to jump...i tik power also play apart too. During ippt, always saw alot of people having the power to jump far. BTW, going to gym and do those 'Leg Curl' exercise going to help in SBJ?

jump up grandstands at stadiums, or jump up chairs (with someone holding on to it, or the back against the wall) - it helps build power (:

yea, my board jump sucks too. apart from tuck jump, do more stretching, so your leg can reach further.

during my active NS days, the instructors seem to believe that doing tuck jumps before SBJ test will help you jump better...

on the contrary, i think tuck jumps tire you up more than help you...(i suppose you can do it for training, but not when you are about to take the test...

agree with Wilb that some stretching will do...

i know this guy who is slightly bigger size than TLR (was a rugby player) and has not problem jumping to 5 points...

waah! just wonder.... does the composition of fast twitch and slow twitch muscle do play apart?

fast twitch muscle have a very high power execution compare to a slow twitch muscle and maybe that's the reason why quite a number of long distance runners can't jump?

I hate SBJ, I did gold for all stations except SBJ who gave me a fail. Arghhhh...

You really mean 'fail' SBJ literally? So sad. Otherwise, you'll be Gold and can look forward to $400 of govt money annually.

All the best to you. After AHM, maybe you can ask Gentle or someone to show you some technique. For me, I don't bother. I always fail the 2.4km; you know why. :)

for 4 years i always get 27 points for napfa because of the jump...

anyone thinks height plays a part because i am only 162cm tall?

or my technique purely sucks. cant blame the different muscle groups because i do a lot of leg press (173kg), half squarts(235kg) and leg curls (73kg). power shldnt be the issue.

and my weight is only 52kg. =/

Gentle: please teach me how to jumppppp! =D

I'm only 165cm in height and my PB for standing broad jump was 252cm. Everybody who was there to view my attempt was shocked to see such a small guy can jump so far. :D

In my opinion, it's all about the arm swing. Use it to 'throw' your body forward as far as possible. While in mid-air, throw you feet in front of your body. When you land, your momentum would drive your upper body forward, so there's no worry about landing on your back.

:w00t: sleepykitty, u r such a good jumper.. can jump more than required (ippt)..Actually can we really control 'our feet movement while in the mid air'? To me, i tik SBJ happen so fast dat the control of movement in mid air is quite difficult leh... Before i can 'throw' my feet in front of the body, i tik i have already landed onto the ground liao..:Thinking: Mayb 1 day would like to request a demo from you...:lol: but i would try it out myself first...thks kitty ..

    • Run for Heroes 2020 All it takes is for you to run, walk or dance a distance of 1km to show your support and gratitude!Upon completion of your run, you will receive two wristbands - one for yourself and the other will be sent to a frontliner with a personalised message of thanks from you as a tangible show of gratitude.Come join us from today until 8 August to show our support as one Singapore! (info - https://www.runforheroes.sg/)                  
    • Actually, one of the things I always look forward to in coming over for SCSM would be carboloading at some hawker stall. Once, after asking for a sixth order of rice, the uncle who owned the place just exclaimed  "哇!!!" (Waah!) 🤣 The only problem is that there always seems to be new construction constantly in Singapore. One place I ate at before was already closed with a new building being built over it the next time I came back, so its hard to have a favorite place to eat.
    • Now, what I'm going to say next may be a somewhat unpleasant topic among runners, but the reality is that among fellow athletes.... there are some who cheat. 🤔  Although this has been minimized now in modern races with timing mats/chips and vigilant marshalls on the course, in less sophisticated events, some dishonest runners take shortcuts, surreptitiously exchange bibs with a faster runner somewhere along the course (so their times come out better), and in one ultra, board their support vehicle when they think nobody is looking, then get off 10-20km later down the road! I don't know what goes on in the mind of those dishonest people who later claim their finisher shirts and medals just so they can brag on their social media accounts of something they did not rightfully accomplish. They are only fooling themselves. They may be actually very few in number, but if they are so thick skinned to be able to do that in a real race, how much more in a virtual one based on an honesty system? They may have  rode a bycycle, or used roller skates/ a skateboard for all we know! IMHO, that is why a medal/finisher shirt from an actual race will always command more respect and honor amongst us runners than that from a virtual one.    
    • I agree. Crossing the finish line at SCSM by analogy, would be like earning a diploma from NUS, while a virtual run on the other hand, would be like getting a certificate of some online course from some shady internet school. You may have truly done the coursework and gained the appropriate learning in both cases, but when you present your documents to a potential employer, the former will be solid proof of your accomplishment and hard work compared to the latter.  
    • I like this statement: We all look forward to a positive future and I believe that this is a great first step in that direction. Marathon is a sport whereby elite athletes and fun runners are actually racing in the same race. It's what makes our sport unique and I find the essence of this to be beautiful.
