Specificity of Strength Exercises to Improve Acceleration

Abstract: The purpose of the study was to use musculoskeletal modelling to examine the specificity of bounding and loaded countermovement jumps (CMJ) to sprinting acceleration. Ten male participants performed 10 m sprints, continuous bounding, and loaded CMJs. A generic OpenSim model was scaled to each individual and used to calculate joint moments, angles and angular …
