Yeah, I thought about that. An alternate idea would be to have some sort of thing like those boxes of nailheads where you put your hand in and it leaves a print. I saw a vertical jump thing one time, where you jumped, and there was a bunch of sort of swinging lever arms, and whichever was the highest you moved, that was your vertical. Something like that would enable you to verify you had at least done SOMETHING.

As I understand it, it's not the degree of knee bend so much as the torso angle, and violence of movement. Still, you could calibrate it for minimal knee movement. This is a freaking hard thing to coach. I think Coach B. thought he was talking to an unresponsive cow when he kept trying to get me to move FAST.

What eez thees ting, FAST?
