Vertical Jump Tip – Post Activation Potentiation Explained

READ THIS ARTICLE: http://www.synergy-athletics.com/effective-strength-training/big-tip-to-become-more-explosive/

I believe this is such a popular topic for two reasons: 1) People associate speed with running and the fatigue that comes along with it, therefore avoiding it all together; 2) and we tend to focus on one element of training (strength, power, hypertrophy, speed, etc.), which is not very effective for an athlete or for time management purposes.

Fortunately, there is a method used to aid in explosive strength and speed-strength that about anyone can incorporate into their regimen. The answer is through a phenomenon known as Postactivation potentiation or PAP. PAP is defined as, “an acute aftereffect of enhanced muscle force output of explosive movements after a heavy resistance exercise” (Robbins 2005). The PAP response can be seen in the theory of “complex training,” which incorporates a maximal contraction exercise such as a squat, followed by a plyometric exercise such as a depth jump. This type of training sequence elevates central nervous system (CNS) excitability, which in turn results in greater motor unit recruitment and force output.
