Seated Split Heel Lifts For Straight Legs On Leaps And Jumps

Jen Fatta from Prestige explains a drill that their team uses to make sure gymnasts' legs are locked straight during split leaps and jumps. This simple technique helps gymnasts engage the correct muscles to straighten and even hyperextend their knees. Then, the gymnasts practice split jumps immediately after and they look to get the same feeling in those muscles as they did during the drill.
