Without data, you’re just another person with an opinion
W.Edwards Deming

This quote is the keystone of the work and technical approach done by Arnaud Muccini.

Writing his first book book, Arnaud attempts to bring all together with the knowledge, observations and notes  collected for many years. Arnaud gives some essential key points to understand the mechanics of the jumps. This book was designed to be an biomechanical handbook, with a practical purpose.
There is one jump mechanic and different jump techniques with many possible variations.
The best technique is the most effective one with the highest success rate possible adapted to the athlete’s unique and specific body qualities.
Working with data averages and percentages helps to get a clear view of what is feasible or not according to the athlete’s profile.
The target audience is the coach, but this book could also be handy for any athlete who wishes to explore an in-depth analysis of their sport.
