Screening Lateral Jump
The Lateral Broad jump is part of the Performance Plus Screening Series. The standing lateral jump is similar to the standing broad jump except you will be standing sideways when you execute this unilateral jump. If you are right- handed, turn so the edge of your left foot touches the starting line, then swing your left leg across your body and explosively push off your right leg. Land on your left leg and plant. Remain standing. The ending measurement is done off the outside edge of your left foot. (Reverse for left-handed pitchers.) The point is to explosively drive laterally off the posting leg in the delivery. Give it a few shots and record your best for the day.
