ABSTRACT THIS ARTICLE EXAMINES THE APPLICABILITY OF POSTACTIVATION POTENTIATION (PAP) FOR THE SPECIFIC DEVELOPMENT OF PERFORMANCE CAPACITIES IN RUGBY PLAYERS. WE ILLUSTRATE HOW A POTENTIATING STIMULUS CAN INDUCE A PAP RESPONSE IN VERTICAL JUMP, SPRINT, AND UPPER-BODY PERFORMANCE. WE PROVIDE INSIGHTS REGARDING THE OPTIMAL STRUCTURE OF A STRENGTH-POWER POTENTIATING COMPLEX (SPPC), SPECIFICALLY EXPLORING THE INTENSITY OF THE POTENTIATING STIMULUS AND THE OPTIMAL RECOVERY DURATION BETWEEN THE… 

Complex training: The effect of exercise selection and training status on post-activation potentiation in rugby league players.

HBD is a suitable CA for eliciting post-activation potentiation (PAP) response in stronger and weaker athletes and strength and conditioning coaches should consider theCA and time frame between the CA and the plyometric exercise for optimal PAP responses.

Impact of Accommodating Resistance in Potentiating Horizontal-Jump Performance in Professional Rugby League Players.

Accommodating resistance in either box squats or deadlifts is an effective means of potentiating SBJ performance across multiple sets of a contrast protocol with only 90-s rest.

Maximal sprints within the warm-up does not affect pacing or performance in a 10 km cycle time trial

Addition of four all-out sprints to the WU did not improve 10 km time trial performance or alter pacing strategy displayed, suggesting that maximal sprinting in a warming up might not be an effective strategy to improve cycling time trial endurance performance.

The Effects of Acute Bilateral and Unilateral Set Protocols on Muscle Power and Rate of Force Development

The results demonstrated that neither conditioning activity prior to a maximal voluntary isometric contraction caused a PAP response, however, both conditioning activities appeared to cause residual fatigue, and practitioners would be wise to incorporate more of the movements that produce the greater response.

Influence of the Intensity of Squat Exercises on the Subsequent Countermovement Jump Performance

Professional Soccer Player Neuromuscular Responses and Perceptions to Acute Whole Body Vibration Differ from Amateur Counterparts.

Acute WBV elicited a positive neuromuscular response amongst professional players identified by PAP and improvements in knee isometric peak force as well as perceived benefits of the intervention, benefits not found among amateur players.

Influence of Postactivation Potentiation on Sprinting Performance in Professional Rugby Players

It is concluded that sprinting performance is enhanced after a preload stimulus providing adequate and individualized recovery is given between the 2 activities, and this may have important implications for training speed.

POSTACTIVATION POTENTIATION IN PROFESSIONAL RUGBY PLAYERS: OPTIMAL RECOVERY

It is concluded that muscle performance can be significantly enhanced following a bout of heavy exercise (preload stimulus) in both the upper and the lower body, provided that adequate recovery is given between the preload stimulus and the explosive activity.

Influence of recovery time on post-activation potentiation in professional rugby players

It is suggested that muscle performance during a countermovement jump can be markedly enhanced following bouts of heavy resistance training provided that adequate recovery (∼8 min) is allowed between the heavy resistanceTraining and the explosive activity.

MVC-induced short- term potentiation of explosive force

% ^ /n numerous sports and sport events performance is, to a great extent, determined by the level of speed-strength. An optimal preparation (worm-up) is necessary to achieve the highest possible

Factors Modulating Post-Activation Potentiation and its Effect on Performance of Subsequent Explosive Activities

Key variables are highlighted and discussed that may be responsible for the contrasting results observed in the current literature on post-activation potentiation and fatigue.

The Acute Potentiating Effects of Back Squats on Athlete Performance

A single set of 3RM squats was found effective in acutely enhancing CMJ height in the study population, especially when the recovery period was individualized for each athlete.

Effect of Different Types of Conditioning Contraction on Upper Body Postactivation Potentiation

Isometric contractions appear to be the only conditioning contractions increasing upper body power output after long resting periods, and no significant differences existed in Fpeak, Dmax, and RFD for ISO, CON, ECC, and DYN.

The Temporal Profile of Postactivation Potentiation Is Related to Strength Level

From a practical standpoint, strength and conditioning coaches should consider the athletes' strength levels when constructing postactivation complexes (CA + performance activity) as strength will dictate the time frame required between the conditioning and the performance activity.

Postactivation Potentiation Response in Athletic and Recreationally Trained Individuals

Postactivation potentiation may be a viable method of acutely enhancing explosive strength performance in athletic but not recreationally trained individuals.

The Acute Effects of An Ascending Squat Protocol on Performance During Horizontal Plyometric Jumps

The present data suggest only very strong individuals (back squat ≥ 2.0 × body mass) exhibit a potentiation effect in a horizontal plyometric activity after performing an ascending back squat protocol.
