Abstract

SUMMARY: VERTICAL IMPULSE IS A STRONG PREDICTOR OF JUMP HEIGHT AND CAN BE CONSIDERED IN LIEU OF TESTING PEAK FORCE OR PEAK POWER. THE SQUAT DEPTH OF JUMPS IS POSITIVELY ASSOCIATED WITH JUMP PERFORMANCE. THEREFORE, SELF-SELECTED DEPTH SHOULD BE REEXAMINED BY ANYONE VALUING VERTICAL PROPULSION.
