Jumping Over a Wall

I know that OCR wall technique is a bit hard to perform. However, once you get use to it, it will be easier for you in time. In this video below I’m going to show you how to jump over a wall from getting to wall and getting to top of the wall. Sounds easy, right?

Most people won’t be able to get higher jumps to a wall because they don’t have proper workout to start it with. Also proper positioning is important while doing this kind of activity. There would probably be a lot of techniques out there but this one is super easy to follow. In order to do this, you have to have proper hip flexion and dorsiflexion to get your knee as high as possible because you will be using a lot of force on your hips to get yourself up to the top.

Follow the steps in the video to achieve this 🙂

No matter the height of the wall, do not be intimidated by it. You need to approach the wall like you want to bulldoze right through it and you have to be super aggressive. Hip flexion and dorsiflexion in your ankle matter here. The higher you can get your knee, the better the dorsiflexion the easier it will be to get over the wall. 

When you get a hold of the wall, either muscle yourself up and over, or kick one of your legs up to help you get over the wall. Once on top position yourself facing the wall and or away and jump down in an area you can see. Land in an athletic position where you land on both feet and use your strong squat position to help you absorb the shock from the jump.

Drills: 
  1. Hip Flexion in Supine
  2. Dorsi-flexion

Hope this video helps!
