Really looking forward to this edition. Looks great as always.
One thing I’d love to see is what is out there on resistance training effects on horizontal jump ability. We see loads of stuff on our obsession of vertical jump ability (understandably so), but I see limited interesting, quality work on horizontal research. I have limited access to papers nowadays, so maybe I’m just bad at finding it! Would absolutely love to see some horizontal stuff in future editions, as far as waht best improves horizontal jumps performance in the gym. I’ve seen lots on vertical vs horizontal force effects on sprinting, etc. Thanks!
Daz, I agree, especially considering that the broad jump is more closely associated with speed than the vertical jump (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22201696). Interestingly, research out of AUT in New Zealand found that holding onto halteres acutely enhanced horizontal jump performance (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22201696). These have been used for centuries (http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v420/n6912/abs/420141a.html), see a video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-K-0PU9K-Js It’s not clear yet if using these in training improves performance longitudinally though.

Best Regards buddy! Greetings from snowy Switzerland.
