Jumping or leaping is a form of locomotion or movement in which an organism or non-living (e.g., robotic) mechanical system propels itself through the air along a ballistic trajectory. Jumping can be distinguished from running, galloping and other gaits in which the entire body is temporarily airborne by the relatively long duration of the aerial phase and high angle of initial launch.

  6. Improving your flexibility it's very important. By jumping over a hurdle a lot of times, it will help you to be able to swing your leading leg wherever you want it to go so that you can maximize the momentum of your jump.

If you're not flexible, you tend to develop an imbalance of strength that will limit your ability to jump. Stretch regularly so you can increase and maintain flexibility in your ankles, knees, and hips.

    Swing your hands up into the air, towards the ceiling, for additional momentum;Breathe out when
    you're doing the motion (like when you lift weights)
