Influence of the coaching condition on the magnitude and reliability of drop jump height in men and women

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal Article

Abstract

This study examined the effect of different coaching conditions on the magnitude and reliability of drop jump height in men and women. Nineteen collegiate sport sciences students (10 men) performed 2 sets of 10 drop jumps under four different coaching conditions: neutral (NE), augmented feedback (AF), external focus of attention (EF), and combination of AF and EF. The AF condition revealed a significantly higher jump height than the NE condition (p = .002), while no significant differences were observed for the remaining conditions (p ≥ .38). The EF condition was more reliable than the NE and AF conditions (CVratio ≥ 1.15), while no differences were observed between the remaining conditions. These results suggest that both the magnitude and reliability of the drop jump height performance is influenced by the coaching condition
