    I got 600K for "hop skip and jump"

    I got 1.17M hits for "hop step and jump" which is what I heard in the early 60s.

      The German term Dreisprung (3 jumps) is best. A bit lame in Swedish & Norwegian "Tresteg" (3 steps).

        In Czech and Slovak it is "trojskok" - "triplejump". I don't believe, it has ever been called anything else.

          I just tried google:

          About 2,650,000 results (0.39 seconds) for hop skip and jump

          About 2,620,000 results (0.36 seconds) for hop step and jump

            Put the terms in quote marks, i.e., "hop skip and jump" vs. "hope step and jump"

              Hey, with the modern run-up, the hop, skip and jump or the hop step and jump could be very descriptive of another event...the HIGH JUMP!

                I have asked numerous clinicians about this trend and gotten very vague responses - something about prepping the muscles to jump. Not really buying it, but lemming that I am, I am now teaching the bound-in-to-run approach and it seems to help. ops:

                  It could be related to the research I remember being mentioned in the USATF Level-2 school about the benefits of "preloading" the legs with Olympic-style lifts or plyometrics before certain sprint exercises. Here's a link to a study that touches on this idea: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16503676
                  These results suggest that a single set of preloading exercises enhances performance during a lower-body explosive power training session
