Abstract

Previous muscle activity can potentiate subsequent muscle performance, a phenomenon known as post-activation potentiation (Tillin and Bishop, 2009, Sports Medicine, 39, 147-166). Although the effect of heavy load dynamic and plyometric conditioning contractions on enhancing subsequent explosive performance acutely has been examined (Esformes, Cameron and Bampouras, 2010, Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, 24, 1911-1916), little information exists on using a ballistic activity as conditioning contraction.
