        Event specific demands have also sparked research into movement
        analysis of these exercises. Sport scientists are currently involved with
        testing to see how angles of takeoff, speed of movement, and force
        application exhibited during jump training relate to event performance.
        The more closely one designs a series to the demands of his or her
        event, the higher the carryover.

        When using plyos to help develop top speed, I assume would you use purely vertical plyometrics due to the mechanics of top speed. However for acceleration development, could a plyo (say a depth jump where you jump forward on impact instead of up) be used as an addition to a workout plan and be successful?
