High jump technique: here are the most used

The high jump is a very ancient discipline whose origins date back to ancient Greece. Since then many things have changed. First the jump equipment and accessories in other, qualitatively more advanced and secondly the high jump technique, which has seen expand modes and uses.
Initially for the jump in the top technique most used was the ventral one or the one in the scissor. Over time, however, it has been seen that both these techniques did not allow the achievement of high heights.
For this reason, today, the most used high jump technique is the Fosbury jump. The characteristic that makes it the most used high jump technique is that movement, which allows to pass the rod, to buckle the back and landing on the shoulders that allows in this way the achievement of important heights.
The technique of the biciata allows you to jump the rod with a scissor movement of the legs, technique higher jump simpler but limited as we said earlier.
The last but not least is the ventral technique, during which the pole jump, the belly will be parallel to the rod. Simpler technique and with more control of the body, for this reason used to bring young people to this discipline.
