May 31 in Vertical jump
Vertical jump training is simple. Improve the eccentric. In this video locate the eccentric and determine what you would do next. Use barrunning principles.

on the last two steps is right leg lifting with glute tuck
@"Eric Trunnell" yes
guy jumping in first clip, no pushing into the plant; use squatty runs and split squatty runs to teach a lower position, timing, etc. to push low into the last step. Front leg needs to respond by casting out far. Casting squatty runs?
Guy has no rotational component; not sure 100% what to do, but I'd try some inside edge/pinky toe work and perhaps try jumping in this manner off a slight curved runup.
What do you think?
Easy as little eccentric. Which lead to all the other stuff. The eccentric comes on the penultimate step.
What exercises should be focused on when trying to transition from a two to one foot jumper? (Sprints,Bounds)??
is the last two steps long to short
they can be either long to short or short to long. Just not long to long or short to short.
@"adarian " Maybe I missed it, but is short to long a better way to load the Achilles?
No , it is about maintaining speed through the air.
What would you do If a client has severe over activity throughout their quads and one psoas not functioning as it should due to muscular imabalances of the hip?
Both quads? Left psoas? @Shane Ball
Both quads, majorily right quadriceps and hip flexors, with under activity/strength through the right psoas
Walk me through it. Over active quad? Psoas not functioning, what is it you want it do that you don’t see happening? I bet they have a common thread.
Both quads, majorily right quadriceps and hip flexors, with under activity/strength through the right psoas with the left psoas being tight/overactive
So not capable of producing power through the weak right psoas
@Shane - hard to say without seeing the athlete in front of me but I would recommend looking into PRI concepts. You might want to see if Right Glute is doing anything. Also look at foot position - definitely need to feel Right Big toe and inside edge during lifts.
