The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between an athlete’s anthropometrics (e.g., trunk length, tibial length, femur length) and peak vertical ground reaction force (vGRF). Participants (n=49 Division I athletes) stood on a 30 cm box and stepped onto the force plates followed by a maximum jump effort, landing back on the force plates. vGRF was moderately correlated with lean mass (r=.489), torso length (r=.398), and average tibial length (r=.289). Secondary analyses of jumpers vs non-jumpers showed that jumpers tended to jump higher, have lower percent body fat, and longer tibial length than non-jumpers.
