Comparison of cycle stretching-stretching in vertical jumps between adult and older active women
PURPOSE: To verify if there is an electromyographic economy and/or an increase in the variables of vertical jumps, both as a function of the use of the Stretch-Shortening Cycle and to compare the findings between young and old women, both active. METHODS: The sample consisted of a group of elderly (GI) and a group of young (GJ), both female. The power was measured through the contact platform and electromyographic activity of the muscles: biceps femoris (BF), rectus femoris (RF), medial gastrocnemius and vastus lateralis, through vertical jumping tests: Squat Jump (SJ) and Counter Movement Jump (CMJ). RESULTS: All the muscles evaluated did not present a statistically significant difference in the electromyographic activation and the comparisons of the mean percentage of use of the Stretch-Shortening Cycle (CAE), but it was observed that for the vastus lateralis and rectus femoris muscles there were significant differences in the comparisons between the two types of jumps of both groups, GI (236.89±115.66 for SJ and 230.45±109.10 for vastus lateralis muscle (VL) CMJ and 155.42±49.06 for SJ and 155 , 45±61.78 for the CMJ of the RF muscle) required greater neuromuscular activation to jump less than GJ (117.40±133.09 for SJ and 133.09±60.71 for VL muscle CMJ and 106.72±34.15 for the SJ and 108.87±38.85 for the CMJ of the RF muscle). CONCLUSIONS: The present study confirms that there was no statistically significant difference in the use of CAE in both groups (GI and GJ). However, when it comes to the skipped height and the power developed, there were statistically significant differences in the comparison of the groups.
