Standing Triple Jump Test

The standing triple jump is an easy to administer test of explosive leg power. The standing triple jump test is based on the athletics triple jump event, though without an approach run. The standing triple jump was also once an event at the Olympic Games in 1900 and 1904, and is also an event in Sports Hall competitions in the UK. The standing TJ is now used commonly in the training for the jumps events, and is part of the jumps decathlon fitness assessment.
