Regarding box jumping, we confused knee angle on landing position on the box with knee angle in landing position in a depth jump. See below.
It comes down to our favorite slogan: What Are You Training For?
We stand by above 90 degrees on the landing. Remember the training goal of CFFB. For those who have attended a CFFB seminar, you know that all movements within the training system are completed to reinforce the posture and position that are required to maximize athleticism in field sport. We call that the “Athletic Position.”
