Abstract

In order to train high level muscle power, the function of reflex stretch and phenomenon of stretch-shortening-cycle in neuromuscular system were used to design Passive Repeated Plyometric Training Machine (PRP Training Machine). This present study tried to compare the training effect of muscle strength and power between the PRP training method and the traditional isotonic weight training method. The results were analyzed by repeated measurement t-test revealed that both training methods could significantly increase muscle strength and power (p<.05). And the independent t-test showed that the effect of power training by PRP training was significantly better than the traditional isotonic weight training. The findings of this study suggested that the PRP Training Machine is an efficient training equipment for muscle strength and power.
