A Multivariate Approach to Assessing Anaerobic Power Following a Plyometric Training Program

1997-01-01
This study used a multivariate approach to assess anaerobic power in 20 athletes and 20 nonathletes undergoing 6 weeks of plyometric training, and 20 controls. A 3 x 2 mixed model MANOVA was done to analyze the pre-and posttest scores of vertical jump, 50-m dash, and Margaria-Kalamen stairclimbing test. The Group x Test interaction was significant (p < 0.001). Both groups that underwent plyometric training improved significantly (p < 0.01) on all tests of anaerobic power. Of the dependent measures, the Margaria-Kalamen test was the most influential in the development of a multivariate composite of anaerobic power. It appears that plyometrics is effective for increasing lower body anaerobic power for both athletes and nonathletes, and the Margaria-Kalamen stairclimbing test is a better tool for assessing this power than either the vertical jump or the 50-m dash.

The effects of eccentric hamstring training on lower extremity strength and landing kinetics in recreational female athletes
SALCI, YAŞAR; Yıldırım, Ahmet; Celik, Ozgur; Ak, Emre; Kocak, Settar; Korkusuz, Feza (IOS Press, 2013-01-01)
Hamstring training involving eccentric loading is an important protective factor in hamstring injuries. However, the effect of this mode of training on lower extremity loading in landing maneuver performance is unknown. The purpose of this study was to examine variations in eccentric hamstring strength after 10-weeks training program and the possible changes in landing kinetics. Twenty five recreational female athletes were voluntarily assigned to the Nordic Hamstraing Strength Training (N = 13) or control ...

Gross motor coordination in junior tennis players
Söğüt, Mustafa (Informa UK Limited, 2016-11-01)
The purpose of this study was twofold: (1) to determine the gross motor coordination performance levels of junior tennis players and (2) to analyse the effects of age and gender. Participants were junior male (n=50) and female (n=51) tennis players aged 6-14. Korperkoordinationstest fur Kinder (KTK) was used to assess the gross motor coordination of the participants. Results revealed that none of the participants performed lower than normal level in motor coordination. Besides, 40.6% of the participants per...
A Comparison of Serve Speed and Motor Coordination between Elite and Club Level Tennis Players
Söğüt, Mustafa (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2017-01-01)
The purpose of this study was to compare the serve speed and motor coordination of elite and club level junior tennis players aged 11-14 years. Participants (n=35) were assigned to one of the two groups according to their experience, weekly training volume and competition level. Serve speed was assessed with a sports radar gun. Motor coordination was evaluated by means of the Korperkoordinationstest fur Kinder. The main results revealed that serve speed and motor coordination performance levels of the elite...
