How do I perform the Jump Test?

There are three kinds of jump tests to choose from: squat, countermovement and continuous. The squat and countermovement tests measure your explosive strength, but in the countermovement jump test your muscles and tendons also do a pre-stretch that lets you use elastic energy, usually allowing you to jump higher. The continuous jump test measures your anaerobic power. It is especially useful for those who do sports that require anaerobic power, in other words maximal effort for short periods.

To perform the Jump Test you need a Polar Stride Sensor Bluetooth® Smart. Go to Tests > Jump test on your V800, and choose the test you want to perform: squat, countermovement or continuous. If you choose continuous, also set the duration for the test.

It is very important to perform the Jump Test with correct technique. See the full user manual and video for detailed instructions.
