The Standing long jump, also called the Broad Jump, is a common and easy to administer test of explosive leg power.
The objective is to measure the explosive power of the legs.
The athlete stands behind a line marked on the ground with feet slightly apart. A two foot take-off and landing is used, with swinging of the arms and bending of the knees to provide forward drive. The subject attempts to jump as far as possible, landing on both feet without falling backwards. The athlete repeats the test twice.
The teacher uses the longest recorded distance to assess the athlete's leg strength.
