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.

Note for self:
A
>>    Jump Squats
>>    Half Squats
>>    Partials at the bottom: 3-5 x 15 (very controlled)
>>    Calf Raises
>>    RDL
>>
>> B
>>    Jump Squats
>>    Half Squats
>>    Squat singles x 10, reset between reps, just working on hitting
>> depth comfortably with moderate loads
>>    Calf Raises
>>    RDL

Measuring reminder:
5 toe to heel steps = 148cm

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.
