Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the effect of various plyometric training volumes on VJH performance. Method: we searched for information in the PubMed, MedLine and SportsDiscus databases where we identified 59 articles according to the inclusion criteria: a) Studies which included plyometric training programs for lower limbs, b) which contained experimental programs and valid and reliable measurements. The best combination seems to be training volumes between 8 and 12 weeks, with 2 or 3 training sessions per week, in which 1 to 3 exercises are performed with a total of 3 to 8 series per session and doing an average of 70 to 100 jumps.

Keywords: jump height, plyometric training, Stretch-shortening-cycle.
