Effect of Vertical Jump and Sprint Training on Power and Speed Performance Transfer

Rodrigo Ghedini Gheller, Rafael Lima Kons, Juliano Dal Pupo, and Daniele Detanico

 al., 2015 ; Moran et al., 2021 ). In sprint and vertical jump actions, the balance between the speed and load (body mass) allows production of a high level of power output ( Morin et al., 2019 ), meaning that both methods (sprint and vertical jump) are commonly used in power training programs (e

Both Caffeine and Placebo Improve Vertical Jump Performance Compared With a Nonsupplemented Control Condition

Jozo Grgic, Sandro Venier, and Pavle Mikulic

These recommendations were echoed in a recent consensus statement on placebo effects in sports and exercise. 5 A recent meta-analysis by Grgic et al 1 reported that caffeine ingestion might acutely enhance vertical jump height. This finding was obtained by pooling the results from 10 individual studies

Ergogenic Effects of Very Low to Moderate Doses of Caffeine on Vertical Jump Performance

Teppei Matsumura, Yuki Takamura, Kazushi Fukuzawa, Kazuya Nakagawa, Shunya Nonoyama, Keigo Tomoo, Hayato Tsukamoto, Yasushi Shinohara, Motoyuki Iemitsu, Akinori Nagano, Tadao Isaka, and Takeshi Hashimoto

. Focusing on jump performance, although caffeine provides ergogenic effects on vertical jump performance ( Grgic, 2023 ; Grgic et al., 2018 ; Salinero et al., 2019 ), only one study ( Ellis et al., 2019 ) compared the effects of multiple doses, including nearly minimum ergogenic dose for strength

Effects of Eccentric Preloading on Concentric Vertical Jump Performance in Youth Athletes

Zachary M. Gillen, Lacey E. Jahn, Marni E. Shoemaker, Brianna D. McKay, Alegra I. Mendez, Nicholas A. Bohannon, and Joel T. Cramer

Vertical jump tests are among the most popular assessments of lower-body power for athletes. 1 – 6 Arguably, the most popular and common vertical jump test is the countermovement jump (CMJ). The CMJ involves a downward, eccentric movement followed by a rapid, maximal, upward, concentric vertical

Concurrent Validity of a Portable Force Plate Using Vertical Jump Force–Time Characteristics

Jason Lake, Peter Mundy, Paul Comfort, John J. McMahon, Timothy J. Suchomel, and Patrick Carden

Force plates are often used to measure countermovement vertical jump (CMJ) ability. This provides practitioners with information about the athletes’ capacity to accelerate their body mass using variables such as impulse, mean force, phase duration, 1 – 4 and the reactive strength index modified (i

A New Way to Restrict Free Leg Movement During Unilateral Vertical Jump Test

Christian Schmidt, Mike Perroulaz, Yago Perez, Jérémie Rosset, Gabriel Wüthrich, Davide Malatesta, and Pierre Samozino

In sports that use vertical jumping (such as volleyball and basketball), acceleration, changes of direction, or sprinting (such as football), the explosivity of the lower limbs is an indispensable quality. 1 , 2 One of the simplest ways to evaluate explosive strength qualities is vertical jumps

Does Complex Training Enhance Vertical Jump Performance and Muscle Power in Elite Male Volleyball Players?

Guilherme P. Berriel, Ananda S. Cardoso, Rochelle R. Costa, Rodrigo G. Rosa, Henrique B. Oliveira, Luiz Fernando M. Kruel, and Leonardo A. Peyré-Tartaruga

movements that promote optimal jump height performance. 1 To improve the vertical jump height of high-performance athletes, different methods and complementary strategies are used to train muscle power. 1 Postactivation performance enhancement (PAPE) is a physiological/neuromuscular phenomenon associated

Females Decrease Vertical Ground Reaction Forces Following 4-Week Jump-Landing Feedback Intervention Without Negative Affect on Vertical Jump Performance

Hayley M. Ericksen, Caitlin Lefevre, Brittney A. Luc-Harkey, Abbey C. Thomas, Phillip A. Gribble, and Brian Pietrosimone

concerned about the negative impact that reducing vGRF during landing may have on athletic performance (ie, vertical jump). Maximum vertical jump height (Vert max ) is commonly used to evaluate performance because of its ease of use as well as its ability to assess lower-extremity power. 19 Additionally

Relationship Between 2-Dimensional Frontal Plane Measures and the Knee Abduction Angle During the Drop Vertical Jump

Brad W. Willis, Katie Hocker, Swithin Razu, Aaron D. Gray, Marjorie Skubic, Seth L. Sherman, Samantha Kurkowski, and Trent M. Guess

correlations to ACL injury risk. 3 – 5 Specifically, an excessive knee abduction angle (KAA), a measure of tibia displacement relative to the femur acquired by 3-dimensional motion capture systems, has been linked to elevated risk of injury to the ACL. 3 A bilateral jump-landing task, the drop vertical jump

The Effects of Cluster-Set and Traditional-Set Postactivation Potentiation Protocols on Vertical Jump Performance

Antonio Dello Iacono, Marco Beato, and Israel Halperin

Wingate. Design A randomized cross-over design was used to compare the effects of 2 PAP protocols employing the same conditioning activity (jump squats with OPL) but with different sets configurations (traditional and cluster) on subsequent vertical jump performance assessed by the CMJ test.
