(blocking) and offensive (attacking, passing, and serving) maneuvers. 14 , 15 Consequently, vertical jump performance was found to be a good performance predictor in volleyball. 16 However, a number of other physiological factors such as CODs have been associated with achievement in volleyball. 16 Indeed

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

example, the peak power measured in unilateral movements (running and cycling) is about half of bilateral movements such as a vertical jump. 38 , 40 , 41 Finally, the time–power curve is hyperbolic. 36 , 37 The steep left part of the curve shows that peak power drops substantially with only small

the form of vertical jumping (VJ) has been deemed to be important for optimal performance in football and is considered in testing for fitness variation and talent selection. 2 However, because many activities in football (ie, acceleration capacity and change of direction ability) require a high
