Abstract

Understanding how to optimize training for every individual is the goal for all exercise specialists. The current study looked into the effects of plyometric development drills within differently trained populations on sustained anaerobic peak, average, end power, and fatigue index. Purpose: This research was intended to explore the potential for untrained individuals to benefit positively to plyometric training in peak power, end power and average power proportionally equal to trained individuals. Methods: Subjects were recruited both verbally and electronically. Recruited subjects (n = 12) attended three sessions; an informational, familiarization and data collection session, and two testing sessions. Subjects were then separated into two groups: trained or untrained. Training status was defined as completing at least two sessions a week of resistance training for at least 20 minutes each session, for 12 continuous weeks prior to participating. All subjects completed two 30 second Wingate tests (WAnT) to test fatigue index, peak, average and end power. One test was preceded by a dynamic warm-up and plyometric drills, while the control only included the dynamic warm-up.
