I hypothesize that a depth jump training program will increase the subjects agility and vertical jump height.
on week protocol (See next slide)
bike followed by static stretches
Week 1: Focus is familiarization (Gehri et al, 1998)
Week 2-6: Focus on proper technique and power production
Subjects will be instructed to step off a 40 cm box, land and perform a maximal vertical jump while minimizing contact time.
(Thomas, French & Hayes, 2009)
Warm-up prior to testing
5 minute stationary cycling
2 Practice trials for each test then record
Illinois Agility Test
Jump Height Test
Cool-down post testing
Dimensions will be measured using open reel long dimension tape measure
Light sensor stop-watches at start and finish gate to ensure accuracy
Observer at far line to ensure subjects reach the end
Considered standard test in agility (Sheppard & Young, 2006)
Dimensions measured using open reel tape measure
Laser stop watch at start and finish to ensure accuracy
(Miller, Herniam, Ricard, Cheatham & Michael, 2006)
Force Platform Model No,
- Vertical Max
