Boost your acceleration and leave defenders for dead - The med ball broad jump will help you develop lower body power that you can transfer from the gym to the pitch
KEY POINTS -
Start by standing with feet shoulder width apart and the med ball held close to your chest.
Drop down into a squat position with your knees bent, hips back and back flat
Jump as far as you can - focus on driving the ground away using your hips to generate force to propel yourself forward, whilst explosively driving the ball away from your chest with your arms (use your whole body to drive the ball as far as possible)
Stick your landing on both feet whilst absorbing the force through your hips and not allowing your knees to collapse on landing
