ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study which aimed to evaluate the methodology of loaded jump squats performed in a Smith-machine and with free weight. The researchers compared a Smith-machine jump squat protocol to a free weight jump squat protocol. They identified the kinetic and kinematic differences between these two approaches to the same test and report on the suitability of both methods for elite athlete testing by assessing the reliability of the measures typically captured by this type of testing.
