The purpose of this study was to assess the acute effects of the static and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) stretching methods on local muscular endurance performance at intensities between 40 and 80% of 1 repetition maximum (1RM) for the knee extension (KE) and bench press (BP) exercises. Fifteen male volunteers (23.9 ± 4.3 years; 174.5 ±(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the influence of including dropset exercises in different orders, both in the pre-exhaustion, as in the post-exhaustion method, and to analyze the performance of total work on the bench press and chest flying exercise. Twenty-two male volunteers with a recreational experience in ST were evaluated in six visits in(More)
This paper proposes an adaptation of the RINS MIP heuris-tic which explicitly explores pre-processing techniques. The method systematically searches for the ideal number of fixations to produce sub-problems of controlled size. These problems are explored in a Variable Neighborhood Descent fashion until a stopping criterion is met. Preliminary experiments(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the acute effects of 3 different stretching methods combined with a warm-up protocol on vertical jump performance. Sixteen young tennis players (14.5 ± 2.8 years; 175 ± 5.6 cm; 64.0 ± 11.1 kg) were randomly assigned to 4 different experimental conditions on 4 successive days. Each session consisted of a general and(More)
This study aimed to investigate the acute effects of passive static and ballistic stretching on maximal repetition performance during a resistance training session (RTS). Nine male subjects underwent three experimental conditions: ballistic stretching (BS); passive static stretching (PSS); and a specific warm-up (SW). The RTS was composed of three sets of(More)
BACKGROUND The Functional Movement Screen (FMS™) is a battery of tests designed to assess movement competency; the overhead deep squat test, specifically, has been shown to be an accurate predictor of overall FMS™ scores. Self-massage (SM) is a ubiquitous warm-up utilized to increase joint range of motion and, therefore, may be effective for improving(More)
BACKGROUND Foam rollers, or other similar devices, are a method for acutely increasing range of motion, but in contrast to static stretching, do not appear to have detrimental effects on neuromuscular performance. PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of different volumes (60 and 120 seconds) of foam rolling of the hamstrings(More)
