CALUM NICHOLL (201033796)
GROUND REACTION FORCE (GRF)
CONTERMOVEMENT AND SQUAT JUMP KINETICS
BIOMECHANICS LAB 3- CALUM NICHOLL
Using a motion analysis system (Vicon Nexus System) the class were able to analyse the forces generated whilst the subject carried out counter movement and squat jumps. The T-Series cameras (6xT160, 6xT40) and the force plate that is dived into 4 sections were used to record the forces. The subject uses the stretch shortening cycle to gain height when jumping.
There are threes phases that make up the stretch shortening cycle (SSC), the concentric, amortization and eccentric …show more content…
Using the force plate in the bio engineering lab, a comparison will be made between the a squat jump and a counter movement jump. Once the results have been generated and the data produced, calculating the maximum power generation, max height and optimum velocity differences between the jumps will be carried out. Also the acceleration, force, velocity and power will be compared graphically. A discussion with regards to the results will then be made, disusing how the stretch shortening cycle can help to increase vertical.
