High jump, Physical abilities, Biomechanical variables


The development of the athletic activity including high jump, was not just a coincidence, but it has gone through many stages of development until it reached the current stage. What makes the high jump activity different from other athletic activity is that it is characterized by the heights altitude a jumper can reach. Therefore, prediction plays a key role in knowing the athlete future achievement results by inferring known facts and data that helps trainers guide and plan training programs and codify their content towards identifying and applying variables that have an effective impact on the training process, raising the athlete skills and physical level. To allow the athlete to reach his/her best performance and jump as high as he could. On this basis, the importance of the research lies in predicting the level of achievement for high jump athletes based on the results of some physical abilities and biomechanical variables related to the athlete performance through the use of the predictive equation proposed by the researcher.
