A study on relationship between calf muscle girth and vertical jump ability
Author(s): Ashwini KN
The purpose of this investigation was to examine the contribution of calf muscle girth to vertical jump performance. Vertical jump plays vital role in the success of many sports. A vertical jump is the act of raising one's center of gravity higher in the vertical plane solely with the use of one's own muscles; it is a measure of how high an individual or athlete can elevate off the ground (jump) from a standstill. To achieve the purpose of the study thirty two (n=32) trained female sportspersons were selected as subjects. The simple random technique was used to select the subjects. The age of the selected subjects was 18-20. Chronological age was taken. The Sargent Vertical Jump test was performed by the subjects to measure the vertical jump ability. To assess the relationship between calf muscle girth and vertical jump ability, a correlation analysis was performed.
