Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of complex sets on kinetic and kinematic variables in a countermovement jump (CMJ) compared to a conventional training session. Twenty-three recreationally trained males completed two familiarisation and two experimental conditions. No significant differences (p <0.05) occurred in the CMJ peak jump height, peak force, peak power and peak velocity obtained from three sets of four CMJ’s which either preceded (conventional training) or followed (complex training) three sets of four back squats with a five repetition maximal load.
