How to Land #07 – Hips Back


Hips and bum get pushed backwards so that your hamstrings and glutes get used more when taking impact. It means that you will be able to take much more impact and bigger jumps because you'll be equally distributing the force between the front and back of the leg.

Use the external obliques and abs to contract also. This will help to support the lumbar spine and resist any flexion of the back when jumping of landing. A strong torso and 'core' will help to protect any impact to the discs and causing issues.

There should be INTERNAL TORQUE (IT) on your body to maximise support of the body and landings. This means : Hamstrings, External Obliques, Teres Major (mid back), Front Deltoid and Pec.
