 al., 2017 ). Subsequently, these values were divided by body mass to include a relative measure. All players performed three countermovement jump with 30-s recovery between each jump. The players were instructed to use a preliminary movement by rapidly flexing the knee, before launching the body vertically

fatigue, the acute responses of elite athletes to specific workouts (ie, technical, tactical, or physical training sessions) seem to be one of the most frequently examined topics. For example, Weakley et al 3 reported distinct vertical jump, perceptual, metabolic, and hormonal responses to traditional
