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

. Furthermore, in 8 professional British badminton athletes, a loaded warm-up was shown to positively affect COD speed but not vertical jump performance. 14 Authors observed enhanced COD speeds when using vests loaded at 5% and 10% BM, compared with an unloaded condition. 14 Specifically, the investigators 14

current study was to compare the effects of performing different unilateral strength training interventions on unilateral horizontal, triple unilateral horizontal, bilateral and unilateral vertical jumping, and their related asymmetries in young soccer players. Methods Subjects Forty-five male young (U-17

-oriented jump exercises instead of only vertical jump exercises. A combination of vertical plus horizontal jump exercises seems to be more effective than solely vertical jump exercises in improving jump height. 19 Sprint Speed Sprint tests over 5 distances were assessed. Plyometric training significantly

a growing interest in developing training programs that specifically enhance performance during these powerful activities. Several strength–power training strategies result in significant soccer-specific physical performance changes, typically assessed by vertical jump, straight-line sprint, and

completed 3 CMJ on the force platform separated by 30-second rest periods between trials. To ensure participants were jumping in the vertical direction, a Vertec (Knoxville, TN) was placed adjacent to the force platform as a target for the CMJ attempts. The second vertical jump test consisted of 2 trials of

As described previously, participants started the movement standing upright with hands on their hips, and after a verbal cue, descended into a squat (countermovement) prior to performing a maximal effort vertical jump. Participants performed 3 maximal efforts

CT protocol used also resulted in improvement of vertical jumping corroborating previous findings in youth. 27 It appears that even a moderate rise in maximal strength is associated with a substantial increase in lower-limb muscle power 29 and participants in this study improved both. Maturation
