Effect of Standing Jumps on 60-m Sprint Kinematics


Understanding warm-ups and running kinematics is crucial for minimizing running injuries and developing effective training programs. Standing jumps may influence the ability to run at high velocity over a short distance. This study investigated the effect of performing standing jumps on 60-m running kinematics. Three standing jump efforts (80%, 50%, and 0% of maximum efforts) were examined in 45 female students in the first year of a university in Northern Taiwan. The participants were requested to perform three standing jumps with maximum efforts for grouping. Researchers recorded the participants' 60-m sprint time and used one-way analysis of variance to test the effect of standing jumps on the average sprint velocities. The results indicated no significant differences in 60-m sprint velocity among the groups applying 80%, 50%, or 0% maximum efforts in standing jumps. However, a positive correlation was discovered between the standing jump distance and 60-m sprint velocity. These findings may assist coaches and athletes in developing effective jump training programs for attaining higher sprint performance.
