Johnson and Bahamonde developed equations for predicting power output during a jump and reach test from a force platform.
Subjects: male and female college athletes
(1) body weight in kilograms
(2) height in centimeters
(3) vertical jump height in centimeters
peak mechanical power in watts =
= (78.5 * (vertical jump height in cm)) + (60.6 * (body mass in kilograms)) - (15.3 * (height in centimeters)) - 1308
average mechanical power in watts =
= (41.4 * (vertical jump height in cm)) + (31.2 * (body mass in kilograms)) - (13.9 * (height in centimeters)) + 431
• The best model values in Table 4 (average power) for height and mass are the same as for Table 3 and do not match the formulas on page 163.
