Practising jumping over an obstacle

In this video, you'll learn how to jump over an obstacle

If you're a beginner, we advise you to practise this exercise with a more experienced companion.

Using the poles for support, you can clear wide obstacles, such as puddles, ditches and many others.

You can make a clearing jump in three steps: driving the poles into the ground, taking off using the straps for support, and landing.

First step: driving the poles into the ground

To prepare for your jump, drive the batons into the ground far in front of you, placing them slighly wider than shoulder width apart

When you come to push down on the poles, you can use the straps on the grips for support

Second step: the takeoff, using the grips for support

Following on from your last movement, jump over the obstacle, pushing down on the grips and keeping the palms of your hands turned towards the ground

To make this jump, put one leg out in front of you and give a strong push off with your back leg

Your jump should be high enough and have enough momentum to allow you to clear the obstacle

Thirdly: the landing

Upon landing, soften the impact by slightly bending your knees

Get your feet back down on the ground, one after the other

Don't land with your feet together, because that will hinder you immediately returning to your stride

You can roll your shoulders forward as you land so that it's easier to resume moving in a forward direction

Now you know how to jump over an obstacle, feel free to incorporate this exercise into your walks. Over to you!
