other one from behind 9-m line. For the 7-m throw, the test followed the rules for the penalty throw in handball. For the 9-m throw, a 3-step run and a vertical jump behind the 9-m line preceded the throw to simulate an in-game throw. 2 , 25 Each BT was executed with and without the presence of a

young male soccer players (aged 16 y), reporting better improvements in vertical jumping performance in LPJT group (Δ9.4% and 8.4% for squat jump [SJ] and CMJ, respectively, in LPJT group; Δ4.6% and 5% for the SJ and CMJ in UPJT group, respectively). Recently, Coratella et al 14 studied the effects of

separated by 40 min or undertook vertical jumps and a 400-m sprint. Each of these sessions was undertaken twice. The body mass reductions averaged 0.8 and 1.3 kg in the 50/200-m sessions over a 2-hr period, and averaged 0.5 and 1.1 kg over 45 min in the 400 m and vertical jump session. These reductions are

improvement in various physical parameters in more recent players compared to those in previous decades (eg, RBs in 2000 had higher scores in bench press, power, and vertical jump by 11%, 9%, and 7.7%, respectively, than those in 1987 43 ). Furthermore, programs display improved strength and power performance

. Planning such types of training during the weeks before the competitive season’s start might also permit to get the most out of it as it has been shown that vertical jump height peaks a few weeks after NMES training in athletes. 9 , 33 Also of importance is the ∼16% lower jump height we found with NMES

A rapid countermovement was conducted by the participants descending until the knee angle reached approximately 90°, followed immediately by a vertical jump. Participants were instructed to jump as high as
