Ghelem A. Eriksrud O. The effect of strength and mobility training on vertical jump performance in a professional basketball player - 1080 Motion
Jumping and sprinting are key performance indicators in basketball as indicated by their inclusion in the NBA Combine. Vertical jump is a classical power test, which is determined by the ability to generate force into the ground at increasing velocities. The interaction of force and velocity can be determined from single or multiple jumps and presented as a force-velocity (F-v) curve. In a single jump F-v curve information of how the athlete is able to generate force as the velocity increases is provided. From multiple jumps both F-v and load-velocity curves can be generated to determine how an athlete is able to generate force and speed across a continuum of loads.
