Musculotendinous Stiffness of Triceps Surae, Maximal Rate of Force Development, and Vertical Jump Performance

Table 1

Performances in a countermovement vertical jump (CMJ), body mass (BM), body height (BH), torque during maximal voluntary contraction (, /BM), and maximal rate of torque development (MRTD, MRTD/BM, and MRTD/) in all the subjects, in high (H), medium (M), and low (L) performers in vertical jump (CMJ). Means ± SD. , , and significance levels of the differences between groups L, H, and M (ANOVA; post hoc Bonferroni -test).
