not sure I am buying this
I don’t believe the same concepts that make us faster can also make us jump higher
I believe that in over-speed the rate and number of ground contacts (the speed in which you have to get back to the ground) is which creates improvements….not the bungee or pulley.
To follow that same principle to jumping we would have to be jumping with minimal resistance and yet get back to the ground at an accelerated rate.
Any one else see my point.
During the actual over speed training session the body is doing something that it can not normally do correct? The same is true with assisted jump training…
This is going to have an affect on the body in some regard. Long term adaptation to the overspeed sprinting method has proved successful and unsuccessful, with certain athletes benefiting and others not.
In the few training studies which have been done on Assisted Jump Training the results have been brilliant compared to normal training methods.
Much needs to be done in order to get this into the main stream of training methods, i understand that…i am a believer however…
