High Jump Curve Diagram – How to map it correctly
The high jump curve diagram provided below shows the measurements for the curve steps with varying stride lengths. These measurements allow for increasing foot-plant angles to the crossbar. In other words, the curve is like a tightening spiral at the end.
All of the measurements originate from the 5th step.
Let’s take the 3’9″-Stride” measurements and apply them.
Here is a diagram showing the measurements applied to a scale. They can easily be applied to the high jump apron as well.
Furthermore, the curve is designed to accommodate the following foot-plant change angles to the crossbar.
This curve will generate centripetal force when run correctly and help high jumpers rotate their lower body’s correctly over the bar.
It’s not a “set-in-stone” diagram as many jumpers have unique curves. The fundamentals of this curve, however, will help jumpers go higher!
