Hurdle Jump Progression

Our standard Hurdle Jump Progression that we use, the same progression I was taught in my time at Mike Boyle Strength & Conditioning.

Nothing crazy, simply learning how the jump and land in proper positions, and then progressing from simple to more complex by adding gravity and/or more of a true plyometric.

  1. Box Jump πŸ‘‰ Learn to land properly without gravity
  2. Hurdle Jump & Stick πŸ‘‰ Learn to land properly with adding gravity and the added deceleration component into the equation
  3. Hurdle Jump with Mini-Bounce πŸ‘‰ Add a small plyometric though the mini bounce to be more reactive to the ground
  4. Continuous Hurdle Jump πŸ‘‰ Pure plyometric/power development

Well typically spend 3 weeks in each progression until we move on to the next ➑️ but we won’t move on to the next progression if the athlete isn’t ready.

Programming Advice: we stay at 3 sets of 5 jumps at each phase. Since each phase adds a level of intensity, we keep the volume the same throughout the progression.

This is just one of the many progressions that you will find in my Coaches Guide to Progressions and Regressions.

We have plyo work, med ball work, upper and lower body strength, and much more!
