output as an index of the maximal capacity of the leg muscles to produce force and power. However, the most frequently recorded variable observed from the vertical jump tests is maximum jump height, which is typically interpreted as an index of the capacity of a muscle to produce either a high force or

Jump tests are commonly used in many international fitness batteries to measure MF ( 9 ) (eg, Canadian Association for Health, Physical Education and Recreation; The Eurofit Physical Fitness Test Battery). Results of the current study are similar to previous field-test validation studies showing

provide indirect measurements of an athlete’s functional state, it is preferable to accompany these monitoring strategies with direct assessments of neuromuscular function. For example, vertical jump testing, 20-m sprint tests, and peak power assessment using a cycle ergometer are popular isoinertial

cardiorespiratory capacity, which consists of 5 laps on a 5-m lane, completed as fast as possible. It was scores as number of seconds, and a low number was a better score ( 22 ). The vertical jump test measured the highest jump in centimeters after a minimum of 3 trials, but the participant had up to 6 trials if

measured using a vertical jump test and a repeated COD test and (2) relationships between TL with changes in neuromuscular physical performance during the same period. Methods Subjects A total of 12 PRO and 16 SEMIPRO male basketball players (age: 26.2 [6.5] and 23.6 [4.9] y, respectively) were recruited

The athletes performed vertical jump tests at 4 different times over the season: 2nd, 5th, 16th, and 31st weeks. The tests were performed before the training session in a randomized order. All players were largely familiarized with the test procedures, which were commonly performed during their

performance characteristics. In the first test block, all subjects performed an isokinetic trunk and shoulder rotation test, an isometric leg extension test, a countermovement jump test, and an incremental treadmill-running test after a standardized warm-up of 20 minutes. In the second test block, all

performed submaximal and maximal SJs and CMJs; a single DJ was also performed from each DJ height. All the tests were performed indoors between 14:00 and 18:00 o’clock, and with the temperature kept between 22°C and 27°C. The session duration lasted about 1 hour for each subject. The jumping tests were
