plyometric jumps

There are two options in the Plyometrics mode:

Land On vs. Land Off

These are standard Plyometric jump measurements. The difference between the two options is subtle. In the "Land On" measurement the athlete is focusing on reducing ground time as well as jumping as high as possible. In the "Land Off" action the the focus is not on jump height. The subject is just trying to reduce ground time. They are trying to get off the ground (mat) as soon as possible.

In summary, again, it should be emphasized that coaches, trainers and athletes (or possibly someone going through a rehab. program) now has an accurate tool for measuring plyometric jumps which provides immediate feedback. Immediate feedback on progress has been shown to be a great motivator.
