Test your leg muscles elastic strength and power output!
This is a test of muscular power, often used in fitness testing. The Sargent jump test consists of measuring the difference between your maximum vertical reach before jumping and at the highest point during a jump. Typically, you swing your arms downwards and backwards, assuming a crouching position, pause momentarily to get balance, and then leap as high as possible, swinging the arms forcefully forwards and upwards.
