If you have been paying close attention to the Strength & Conditioning Research website, you will have already seen our sprinting page. This huge resource summarizes all of the important research regarding both accelerating and maximal velocity sprint running. We included all the long-term training studies, as well as the in-depth biomechanics.
Soon we will be releasing a jumping page to accompany the sprinting page. This will further allow athletes and coaches to improve their understanding of how to maximize vertical jump height and athletic performance.
Jumping is one of the most important athletic skills for team sports athletes and is a key element of rugby, soccer and basketball. The NFL implements a test battery at its annual combine that includes both vertical and horizontal jumps. Track & Field has a number of jumping events dedicated to it, including the long jump, high jump and triple jump.
An athlete who can’t jump both high and far is not going to be successful in any of these sports. So how can strength and conditioning coaches help their athletes jump higher and further?
Here are the questions we will answer in our new page:
Warm ups and potentiation
Biomechanics, modeling, attentional focus, and reviews
Sprinting & jumping relationships
To make sure you receive an update when the new jumping page is launched, make sure you sign up for our free newsletter at Strength & Conditioning Research!
