Kinematic aspects of take-off action in long jump


Rajan Bhatia, Bhanu Pratap

The aim of the study was to investigate the relationship among the kinematic variables and take off in long jump. To find out which kinematic variable was most contributing in the enhancement of the performance. The sample consisted of 5 (Five) Long Jumpers in the age group of 17-25 years’ were purposely selected from Lakshmibai National Institute of Physical Education, Gwalior (M.P). The parameters examined Linear kinematic is Center of mass at the time of moment take off, and angular kinematic are namely, angle at ankle joint (right, left), angle at knee joint (right, left), angle at hip joint (right, left),angle at shoulder joint (right, left), angle at elbow joint (right, left). The statistical analysis of the result and relationship, long jump performance of the kinematic parameters but the relationship was statistically significant. The angular kinematic variables revealed that significant relationship of Right knee angle with the performance in long jump also provides further insight into long jump performance, although not all variables associated with real jumping performance. To conclude, it may be interpreted that the above regression equation is quite reliable as the value of R2 is .541. In other words, the one variable selected in this regression equation explains 54.1% of the total variability in the Right Knee Angle which is quite good. Since F- value for this regression model was significant, reliable. Thus it appears that the important factors identi?ed can also be clearly related to speed, technique and strength, and are closely related to those identi?ed from the present regression analysis.
