The purpose of the study was to examine the relationships among mechanical and motor control parameters on maximum vertical jump performance. Specifically, the goal was to examine the influence of motor control (angle of take-off and position of the COP relative to the COM), and mechanical parameters (power of COM at take-off, COM velocity at take-off, and sequence of maximum joint velocities) on maximum countermovement vertical jump performance jump height).
