Abstract

The vertical jump is an important skill for many sports. There is strong scientific evidence indicating that jumping is affected by both muscle force capability and coordination. Thus, optimization of jumping ability requires training methods that affect both components, muscle force and coordination. Several studies have indicated that the combination of strength training and jump training is very effective in increasing jumping ability. However, recent data demonstrated that whole-body vibration (WBV) exercises have the ability to increase both force production and jumping height. These increments are similar to regular strength and jump training. Whole-body vibration platforms produce oscillatory motion that triggers a tonic vibration reflex that increase alpha motorneurons activity and consequently muscle force. Although many studies have been done on the effects of WBV on jumping height, none have reported the potentially magnified effects of regular strength training performed on the vibration platform. In addition, if regular jump training is added to WBV training, the former would tune the jumping skill to take advantage of the increased strength. Thus, the purpose of this project is to identify if strength training performed, on the vibration platform, combined with jump training would produce greater increments in jumping height than jump training added on the top of regular strength training. In addition, this project aims to identify possible differences in motor control changes produced by these training methods. (AU)
