Vertical Jump Mat

The Sargent Test was a common method for measuring vertical jump height. An athlete would slap chalk on a wall and then measure the marks to determine the jump height. Later, mechanical measuring systems became the standard. The vertical jump mat measures jump height by establishing two states: contact time (Ct) and flight time (Ft).… Continue reading Vertical Jump Mat

Vertical Jump Calculator

A vertical jump calculator uses physics equations to determine the jump height and force needed to complete the jump. The calculator requires no special hardware. To use it, simply tap the start button when your feet leave the ground, then release it. The device will calculate the jump height by calculating the force of gravity… Continue reading Vertical Jump Calculator

Vertical Jump Trainer

When you’re training for a vertical jump, there are some key principles to remember. Firstly, you’ll need to increase the power-to-weight ratio in your jump. The higher this ratio, the greater your power and speed, which will increase your vertical leap. Another important principle is to focus on increasing your velocity and strength at the… Continue reading Vertical Jump Trainer

Plyometric Exercise

Plyometric exercises are exercises that recruit fast twitch fibers. The muscles in your body shorten and lengthen during the concentric phase of a jump. These movements create a large amount of stored energy and force inside the muscle. When performed correctly, they enhance muscle power performance. Plyometrics training is a great way to build muscle… Continue reading Plyometric Exercise

Plyometric Workout

Performing a plyometric workout is an excellent way to get your heart rate up and burn calories. Plyometric exercises target multiple muscles at once. For example, lunge jumps target your glutes, quads, hamstrings, calves, and hip flexors. They also involve a high level of coordination. Plyometric exercises are also great for toning your legs. If… Continue reading Plyometric Workout
