    hello,
    do you think tritple extension while jumping is good in terms of more power output and safety?
    it does not come natural to me, but im thinking that because im using my glutes more i can generate more power(maybe more horizontal power?)

    What exactly do you mean by "good"? Be more careful with your typing.

    By good I mean if itís doing something abnormal for the lower back posture and can cause demege,i learnd from you to NOT push the hips forward in the squat.
    But maybe the vertical itís another thing,and I can contract the glutes without pushing forward to much.

    And for the other good Iím thinking of:
    My thinking is if I can put more muscles to work I can generate more power.
    Off course my glutes working even if I donít want to at the rising from the bottom,but I find Iím not contracting them to the full potential(?).

    Hope I succeed bringing my thoughts-English is not my primary language.

    Do you mean just a standard jump into the air?
    Or do you mean a box jump (jump up onto a box)?

    Because a box jump might be the only time I've seen people NOT "triple-extend" for a maximal jump.

    i.e. they're too worried about getting their feet up onto the box in front of them,
    likely from the box being set way too high,
    and therefore they cut their extension off too soon.

    If you are referring to the use of the "triple extension" as a cue during the clean, we haven't found it necessary.

    ok,
    And from your experience and things you have to said about vertical jump in your podcasts and YouTube videos,it will not help me with the vertical jump either?

    Take a closer look at vertical jumps,
    Not a lot lock they’re hips,ankles and knees.
