"A relaxed jump is the best jump" fallacy
« on: June 25, 2019, 02:12:29 pm »
Many jumpers and trainers will say that a relaxed jump is the best jump like Joel and the Vertical Jump Bible author. This idea was enlightening because we all felt relaxed on our highest jumps.

But it seems like that relaxation and gliding feel on a good jump is the symptom of the good jump itself not the other way around. I would say that a happy jump is the best jump. Where your mind is at a good state can achieve the most efficient leverage and power on jump.
