The study was performed in an effort to gain greater insights into the adaptations invoked by plyometric and weight training. Forty-one previously trained males were randomly allocated in either a control, plyometric, or weight-training group. The experimental groups trained for 8 weeks, performing either heavy lifts or dynamic plyometric exercises. The following test items were performed prior to and at the completion of the training period: (a) vertical jump, (b) a series of isoinertial… CONTINUE READING
