Abstract

Muscle power is one mechanical quantity that is not clearly understood by many coaches and teachers of human movement. This is probably due to an inadequate differentiation between the concepts of work/energy and of power. Thus we will begin this paper with a discussion of these concepts. The analysis of the vertical jump as a measure of work, energy, and power will also be discussed.
