Measurement of Explosive Leg Strength in Relation To Different AxesAuthor(s):
Strength namely explosive leg strength is most important among the different conditional abilities. During participation in various types of big muscle activities, it is applied in various ways. Here, different axes refer to linear axis and vertical axis. In sprints and broad jumps, this ability is used mostly in horizontal direction but during high jump, volleyball and basketball playing, this ability is used mostly in the vertical direction. The extent of explosive leg strength applied in generally measured by either standing broad jump or vertical jump irrespective of the events participated. The question is whether it is right to measure the explosive leg strength of athletes who usually convert strength in the vertical direction by using standing broad jump or the athletes who mainly convert explosive leg strength in the horizontal direction by using vertical jump. For this purpose, sprinters and long jumpers were clubbed in one group and high jumper & volleyball players were clubbed in another group. They were tested both on standing broad jump and vertical jump. For analysis, correlation method was used for measuring the relationship among the variables.Pages: 178-179 | 908 Views 9 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
