stick to RL plant jumps and left knee and quad should be fine

yea.. was guessing that. i wanted to ask to make sure cause when i plant LR i feel more pressure on my right leg too. more so the shin area than the knee though.

i actually had shin splints this winter in my right leg from LR plant jumps hahah, its weird, but it passed away since weather got warmer this spring,

but anyway im sure if you plant LR much more stress is on left leg, same on RL and right leg

might have go for a longer break. my condition hasn't been tendonitis for a long time now, just tendonosis. will take a long time for the tendon to get better again

The more I sit here and mess with mine...its QUITE possible 8 have a strain or small tear in the bottom of my quad where it comes into the patella. The pain starts above the patella and radiates down across it (i think lol). If thats the case only fix is rest.

just to confirm, when you measure your Broad jump with measuring tape you line up the start your heels right? it seems like a lot of people line the front of their foot at the start

nope. stand behind the line, jump, measure to the back of your heel. so:

heeltoe|----JUMP-----|heeltoe

the space between the |'s is your distance.

That is true, but it is just the way it is measured for reference. I guess it just replicates the olympic games measurement system ( see long jump and triple jump ).
Given the chance, not sure if you people are aware, broad jump WAS an olympic event early on : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standing_long_jump
