Jump Height and Absolute Strength: An Indirect Relationship by Max Schmarzo

I often find myself explaining to athletes and parents of athletes the importance of training for strength. So many athletes come in looking to get faster or jump higher and but don’t want to put in the effort for strength training. 

Well, author Max Schmarzo has written and excellent quick read article that will shine some light for anyone interested in how maximal strength influences movement. He even gives a great breakdown on how velocity is developed and why you need it in order to jump higher. 

You can find the link to his full article below.
