The mechanisms that enable arm motion to enhance vertical jump performance—A simulation study
Kuangyou B. Cheng

Although numerous studies have reported increased height with arm swing in standing vertical jumps, contradictory results have also been reported. Knee joint torque/work was found to decrease [1][2] or increase [3] in arm swing jumps. Increase in ankle joint torque/work was substantial in most studies but insignificant in some other researches [3][4]. This inconsistency may be due to different training or proficiency levels of the subjects, …
