Some data from Jesus Depena’s 1995 report, combined with some of his data from women too, for you to look at below. This shows the relationship between the speed of approach runing and the vertical velolcity produced in the jump. The male jumps at the top end exceed 2.40 meters in the actual hight jumped. To simply calculate the speed of your approach, work out a measured run-up using my ‘RUN-UP CLACULATOR‘ that will give you the length of the curved part of the run. Then film some jumps and count the frames between the foot strike’s at the start of the curve and the take-off. This will give you a time in seconds relative to the filming speed, e.g 24 frames per second: 36 frames = 1.5 sec, on a 9m curve = 6m per sec runing speed. Over 4.2 m/s vertical velocity is required for top male high jumpers producing 1.20m + of vertical jump, this requies a run-up speed of around 7 – 8 m/s.
