SVJ of Turkish basketball players

If you hate your SVJ, don't feel too bad. I just read this study where they ran a bunch of fitness/power tests on twelve Turkish 'First Division' bball players. Here are the average stats:

Age: 25.1 years

Weight: 93kgs

Height: 195cm

Body fat %: 10.0

And the test results:



They had to keep their hands on their hips but still, wtf is up with S&C studies reporting these insanely low VJ numbers? I remember there was another article posted awhile ago showing sprinters and O-lifters jumping less than 50cm.

Few year ago I had my vert measured on dynamometric platform @ University of Physical Education in Warsaw (friend of mine was taking some measurments for his master degree). I was restricted to keep my hands on the hips and my score was  16'' while my wall measurements was 23''. Also no one jumped higher than 24''. So when you match athlets, advanced measuring systems, and sport scientist you can expect strangest things ;)

Well they didn't mention what they used for testing so I guess whatever they used could have underestimated their vert. But even so, these guys had an average of 14 inches, which seems ridiculous given their background and physical attributes (low bf% and sprint times). It's just weird that I've read a few papers now that seem to report really low SVJs for athletes you'd expect to be high.

without going back and looking at the paper, the only explanation i can think of is that it's a paused squat jump. so hands on hips or head or whatever, dip down, pause, and jump from that position. even then it seems low.
