A WARM-UP INCLUDING A 5RM SQUAT PROTOCOL INCREASED BLOOD LACTATE, WITHOUT ALTERING THE SUBSEQUENT JUMP PERFORMANCE
Keywords: Potentiation, 5RM Back Squat, Acute Metabolic Changes, Vertical Jump
AbstractThe execution of an acute resistance exercise has shown to enhance a subsequent explosive movement; this enhancement is termed Post Activation Potentiation (PAP). PAP exists in conjunction with both acute metabolic and neuromuscular fatigue mechanisms which still are not fully understood. This study aimed to identify the effect of a five repetition maximum (5RM) back squat on vertical jump performance and blood lactate.
