Nice article, this helps me also sprinting and one leg jumpers share single leg strength. Calf strength is important in sprinting also for dorsi and plantar.

I'm going to try jumping with locked knees, I will take it as a challenge. :P

Tendon's will definitely be interesting not a muscle but still to be considered.
Warm up drills
   - a walk, b skip quick powerful switch (heel to hams focus), a runs, dribbles small to big to run, straight leg to runs (force, reflex, go up/forward). force to hit the ground before it hits the ground knee/hip is at 90 degrees.
   - acceleration: low heel recovery, shin angle low, drive legs back before hitting the ground and drive thighs/knee forward not up
-------------------------------------------------------------
Measuring reminder:
5 toe to heel steps = 148cm
------------------------------------------------------------------------

�Strength comes from the legs, Power comes from the torso and Speed comes from the arm.� � Al Vermeil
Arm also aids the legs in driving it down with power - seifullaah73

very enjoyable.

why do you call yourself "coach" though? seems like kind of a silly internet thing, like trying a little too obviously or too hard to give yourself credibility. maybe it's different in romania? but when i see people refer to themselves that way elsewhere i get immediately skeptical.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

I'm 100% with you. VERY few people deserve that title (think Charlie Francis, Dan Pfaff, Tom Tellez etc). Not some random "guru" guy on the internet.

But the answer in this situation is very simple: when I launched this site, I decided to use the term "coach" for whoever was going to write for my blog/give advice on the forum as "official" from my site. So my plan was/and still is - to get some other guys involved. And using this title - it's going to be easier to identify, for the regular guy, who is and isn't affiliated with my website (who I consider can give advice on my behalf).

That's all. I couldn't find a better idea.
