Not to take anything away from it, it is a pretty impressive accomplishment and he must have worked hard to get that strong, but I’m starting not to like box jumps as a performance indicator.
If you look at the height of his hips after he jumps but before he drives his knees up, it isn’t remarkably high. (Although it is high for his height.)
What is his normal standing vertical jump?
Just from watching videos online, it seems like people who do box jumps tend to not extend their hips fully upon take-off because they are focused on driving their knees up once they get in the air.
This incomplete hip extension means they are creating less force than they are capable of, and while it may not hurt their box jump height, it would negatively affect their vertical jump.
well it says vertical jump 87cm. Which would mean a 34.3 inch vertical jump (i just used google to figure that out haha) but yeah, 34 inches is impressive. Now it didn’t state whether it’s a standing or running vert jump, but I’m guessing standing. 34 inches is definaetly reasonable. Your thoughts?[/quote]
Yeah it is just a plate jump.
I’d say a 34" jump @ 5"5 is impressive.
His vertical jump is from standing still. No run ups here.
