Postactivation Potentiation of Bench Press Throw Performance Using Velocity-Based Conditioning Protocols with Low and Moderate Loads

( p < 0.001, Hedges’ g = 1.2). Peak velocity was significantly higher under the 60%_90_v condition compared to: (a) the 40%1RM_90v condition from the 0.75 ( p < 0.001, Hedges’ g = 1.5) till the 8 th minute ( p < 0.001, Hedges’ g = 1.2) of recovery (b) (b) the 60%1RM_70v condition in all time points ( p < 0.001, g > 1.2) (c) the 40%1RM_70v condition in all time points ( p < 0.05, g > 1.2) except the 10 th time point of recovery ( p = 0.29). Peak velocity during recovery for each participant irrespective of time was 7.5 ± 4.2% greater than

A Preliminary Analysis of Relationships between a 1RM Hexagonal Bar Load and Peak Power with the Tactical Task of a Body Drag

., 2017b ; Lockie et al., 2018c , in press). The correlation strength was designated as: an r between 0 to ±0.3 was considered small; ±0.31 to ±0.49, moderate; ±0.5 to ±0.69, large; ±0.7 to ±0.89, very large; and ±0.9 to ±1, near perfect for relationship prediction ( Hopkins, 2002 ). Stepwise linear regression analyses ( p < 0.05), with sex as a control variable, were conducted for each drag to illustrate whether absolute 1RM HBD, relative 1RM HBD, or peak power predicted standard or adapted drag performance for the 74.84 kg or 90.72 kg dummies.

Lower-Body Power Relationships to Linear Speed, Change-of-Direction Speed, and High-Intensity Running Performance in DI Collegiate Women’s Basketball Players

characterized by 20-m shuttle runs with 10 s of recovery between each run. The YYIRT1 has four running bouts at 10-13 kilometers per hour (km·hr -1 ), and another seven runs at 13.5-14 km·hr -1 . Following this, the YYIRT1 continues with stepwise 0.5 km·hr -1 speed increments after every eight running bouts until exhaustion ( Lockie et al., 2018b ). The test was considered to be over in two instances: one, when the player failed twice to reach the finishing line in time; or two, when the player was physically unable to complete another shuttle at the designed speed.
