Abstract

Increased popularity in the utilization of force plates to measure countermovement jumps for performance monitoring warrants the need for strength and conditioning coaches and sport scientists to better understand its force time characteristics and the calculation of its associated variables. This article aims to provide information on how to understand and analyze the force time curve of CMJ’s in Microsoft Excel, thus providing practitioners an inexpensive and accessible alternative to readily available software on the market.
