THE EFFECT OF AQUATIC & LAND PLYOMETRIC TRAINING ON THE VERTICAL JUMP AND DOMS – 2017

METHODS
– vertical jump (VJ) and delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS)
– 24 male soccer players aged 16-18 yrs (16.53 ± 0.5 yrs) in 3 groups:
(1) aquatic plyometric training (APT) (n = 8; age: 16.4 ± 0.4 years; body mass: 68.3 ± 7.54 kg; height: 179.75 ± 8.13 cm)
(2) land plyometric training (LPT) (n = 8; age: 16.5 ± 0.5 years; body mass: 68.2 ± 7.8 kg; height: 177.0 ± 7.4 cm)
(3) control (n = 8; age: 16.7 ± 0.6 yrs; body mass: 61.2 ± 6.5 kg; ht: 171.43 ± 5.75 cm), not performing any jump program
– An identical training program was applied for 6 weeks, totaling 944 jumps
– The VJ was evaluated on a leap jump platform and the Visual Analogue Scale measured the change in DOMS perception

RESULTS
– There was a significant increase in the VJ height in both experimental groups (LPT and APT)
– A significant reduction in DOMS perception was verified for the APT group in comparison with the LPT group between the first and last week of training
– The foot contact time significantly decreased in the APT group from pre- to post-test
– Significant improvements were observed in the flight time and jump speed from pre- to post-test in both LPT and APT groups
CONCLUSIONS
– APT can increase the VJ height and reduce DOMS perception in soccer players
