The modern understanding of jumping locomotion is based on the explosive contractile work of muscles. However, our studies show that muscles are not capable of manifesting dynamic characteristics recorded by equipment and determined analytically. At the same time, there are many indications that when performing jumps, a person does not use the muscular-contractile principle of locomotion. There is an assumption that both practitioners and researchers are mistaken in the perception of the gestalt image and, therefore, in the development of the jumping paradigm. Our research shows that jumping is carried out by using the energy of the deformation of the tendons. This aberration hinders the progression of records in jumping and does not allow demonstrating the true capabilities of a person.
