PURPOSE It was investigated whether control in jumps for distance is related to control in jumps for height. METHODS Five male subjects performed maximum squat jumps in the following conditions: VJ (vertical jump), LJ (long jump), and two conditions with inclination angles of the body relative to the horizontal of 75 and 65 degrees, respectively. An inverse dynamics analysis was performed using measured kinematics and ground reaction forces. In addition, jumps were simulated with a forward… CONTINUE READING
