The purpose of this investigation was to examine power performance in jump squats when using the complex and contrast training methods. Eleven (n = 11) women participated in a familiarization session and in three randomly ordered testing sessions. One session involved completing sets of power exercises (jump squats) before sets of half squats (traditional method). The second session involved sets of half squats before sets of jump squats (complex method). A third session involved the…

The acute effect of lower-body training on average power output measured by loaded half-squat jump exercise
Background: High muscular power output is required in many athletic endeavors in order for success to be achieved. In the scientific community postactivation potentiation and its effect on
COMPARISON OF LOADED AND UNLOADED JUMP SQUAT TRAINING ON STRENGTH/POWER PERFORMANCE IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYERS
TLDR
Evidence of the benefits of the jump squat exercise during a short-duration (5-week) training program for eliciting strength and power gains is provided and the eccentric phase of this ballistic movement appears to have important implications for elicitating these strength gains in college football players during an off-season training program.
The acute effects of back squats on vertical jump performance in men and women.
TLDR
Substantial individual responses were noted in both men and women in response to the PAP protocol used in the present study, which may render such PAP protocols impractical for strength and conditioning practitioners as the protocols are likely to require in-dividualizing to each athlete.
Acute Effects of Heavy-Load Squats on Consecutive Squat Jump Performance
TLDR
The results indicate that performing a heavy-load back squat before a set of consecutive SJs may enhance acute performance in average and peak jump height, as well as peak GRF.
SHORT‐TERM EFFECTS OF SELECTED EXERCISE AND LOAD IN CONTRAST TRAINING ON VERTICAL JUMP PERFORMANCE
TLDR
Data show that contrast loading with the use of low and moderate loads can cause a short-term increase in CMJ performance, and the applied loads do not seem to present different short- term effects after loaded JSs.
EFFECT OF LOADING ON ENHANCEMENT OF POWER PERFORMANCE OVER THREE CONSECUTIVE TRIALS
TLDR
The execution of an MVIC performed before a power exercise was inadequate to acutely enhance power output over any of 3 consecutive trials, and significant correlations were found between absolute strength and mean peak power, mean peak acceleration, means peak force, and max peak velocity.
The Acute Effects of Manipulating Volume and Load of Back Squats on Countermovement Vertical Jump Performance
TLDR
Although neither squat protocol provided any benefit in improving JH, the heavy squat protocol produced greater increases in VStiff during the CMJ, and volleyball coaches may consider using such protocols with their players to improve performance in jumps performed from a run such as the spike and on-court agility.
COMPLEX TRAINING AND COUNTERMOVEMENT JUMP PERFORMANCE ACROSS MULTIPLE SETS: EFFECT OF BACK SQUAT INTENSITY
The purpose of this investigation was to determine the acute effects of back squats on countermovement jump performance across multiple sets using a strength-power potentiation complex training
An Investigation into the Acute Effects of Depth Jumps on Maximal Strength Performance
TLDR
The findings of this investigation demonstrate that the inclusion of 2, 4, or 6 DJs, 4 minutes before a maximal squat, enhances subsequent strength performance.

Acute Enhancement of Power Performance From Heavy Load Squats
The purpose of this research was to determine whether a loaded countermovement jump (LCMJ) could be enhanced if preceded by a set of half-squats with a 5-RM load. Ten subjects experienced with the
The optimal training load for the development of dynamic athletic performance.
TLDR
The experimental group which trained with the load that maximized mechanical power achieved the best overall results in enhancing dynamic athletic performance recording statistically significant (P < 0.05) improvements on most test items and producing statistically superior results to the two other training modalities on the jumping and isokinetic tests.
Relationship between strength qualities and sprinting performance.
TLDR
It was concluded that strength qualities were related to sprinting performance and these relationships differed for starting and maximum speed sprinting.
Electromyographic and Kinetic Analysis of Complex Training Variables
The use of complex training as a method of combining weight and plyometric exercises during the same training session is growing in popularity, despite limited scientific support for its efficacy.

Effects Of Different Warm-up Protocols On Peak Power Output During A Single Response Jump Task 1127
TLDR
The hypothesis that incorporating strength- or power-oriented drills into a standard warm-up routine improves peak power output in a single response jump task is tested.
Postactivation potentiation in endurance-trained male athletes.
TLDR
Enhanced PAP may counteract fatigue during endurance exercise and be responsible for the enhancement in the trained muscles of male endurance athletes.

TLDR
The analysis of the myoelectrical activity of the leg extensor muscles showed that the nervous system plays an essential role in regulating muscle stiffness and thus utilization of muscle elasticity in ballistic exercises.
