Jump To Quicker 10M Sprints

Jump To Quicker 10M Sprints Track and field athletes putting the finishing touches on pre-season training might be interested in the findings of a study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research which found a direct association between peak vertical jump velocity and 10 meter sprint performance.

Scientists tested 32 college-aged athletes on weighted countermovement jumps and clocked their 10 meter sprint time. There was a weak association with rate of force development, but peak jump velocity is a fairly accurate indicator of sprint time.

True Strength Moment: Working in some plyometric training might be an effective approach to building up lower body power and force production. If you have a couple of weeks before your season begins, it might make a difference in your performance.
