So the maximum average unloaded countermovement jump ( SVJ ) is that of the sprinters. And it stands at..........



50cm ( 19,68'' )  :o  :o  :o

This^^^

Something is really fishy there... I mean what, they all squat over 2x (even the control group with no training background) and jump just 50 cm? No way that is happening unless they all are 3 feet tall or something.

Jump squats on a Smith machine? WTF?


I agree there's something off with these tests as their verts are pathetic for their relative strength.

Maybe a 3x squat in a smith machine is equivalent to a 1x free squat :trolldance:

Lmao!

Just for kicks I tried squatting on the smith (no weight) and it felt completely unnatural. I cant imagine how a jump squat would feel!

It's one of the weirdest things in the world - the smith machine squat. It feels OK at the top but once you start going down... oh boy...

But apparently you can load the quads more with it by putting your legs forward and making a "sliding wall sit" out of it.

this article qualifies for trash of the year.
33yrs | 12in SVJ | >45% BF | 220LB | 5'9 | 7'5 reach | 225lb max squat paused

Coming back from 2 years of inactivity!

Goal: Maintain 385-405lb squat while cutting down to 165 LB
