Abstract

The purpose of this study was to compare drop jumping from various heights with and without controlling for contact time. Twenty healthy individuals performed drop jumps from various. Preliminary EMG, power, and kinematic results showed some changes in motion patterns when controlling for contact time. Those patterns, however, did not significantly alter the height jumped.
