EFFECT OF POSTACTIVATION POTENTIATION ON EXPLOSIVE VERTICAL JUMP:ASYSTEMATIC REVIEW AND META-ANALYSIS
Summary of Article
The authors examined 36 studies and concluded that indicate that “PAP does not improve vertical jump performance.”
However, the authors go on to note that rest intervals between 3 and 7 minutes provided favourable performance outcomes, whereas rest intervals less than 3 minutes or performing isometric contractions may be detrimental to performance.
The study then concluded that “when appropriate PAP guidelines are followed, an increase in vertical jump performance may be achieved.
