I'm a long jumper with a personal best of 7.40 meters. I land on my feet hitting the sand regular between 7.60-7.80 meters but I always seem to land flat on my buttocks or try to pull my feet back before they actually hit the sand.

I do a fast hitch kick technique and I think I'm just going to start throwing my self forward as soon as my feet hit. I'm worried that I will over rotate too soon.

Can anyone suggest something? I want to avoid this problem.

The hitch-kick technique allows you to counteract the forward rotation developed at the takeoff. By cycling the legs and arms through the air, you are able to maintain an upright body position and set up for an efficient landing position. If you do not counteract the forward rotation, you are not cycling the arms and legs, the body would continue to rotate forward into a facedown position in the sand.
