This study investigated the effects of instantaneous performance feedback during the jump-squat exercise over a 6-week training period. Twenty-five strength-trained athletes were randomly divided into an instant feedback ( n = 13, half-squat 3-repetition maximum (3RM)/body mass = 2.38 ± 0.19) or a nonfeedback ( n = 12, half-squat 3RM/body mass = 2.03 ± 0.44) group. Both groups performed the same training program (3 × week), consisting of 4 sets of 8 repetitions (weeks 1–3) and 8 sets of 4 repetitions (weeks 4–6) using a barbell with a load that maximized the average concentric power output (Pmax) of each athlete. Subjects in the instant feedback group were given real-time data after each repetition. Pre-, mid-, and post-training testing consisted of maximum 20-, 30-, and 50-m running speed, 3RM back half-squat load, Pmax and the load that maximized average concentric power output (Pmax load), countermovement jump (CMJ), and squat jump (SJ) height. Results revealed that the feedback group significantly improved all selected tests vs. nonfeedback (time × group interaction, p < 0.01). Significant improvements after training for 20, 30, 50 m, 3RM load, Pmax load, CMJ, and SJ were observed in the feedback group only ( p < 0.01). Training without instant feedback did not lead to significant performance improvements; this group actually demonstrated significant decreases in SJ and Pmax (W) and Pmax load ( p < 0.05). The results of this study indicate that the use of instant feedback during jump-squat training in athletes was beneficial for improving multiple performance tasks over 6 weeks of training. Instant feedback is an important element of power training to maximize adaptations when training strength-trained athletes. ...

Does periodization work? Athletes perform better in major events than in minor competitions Matomäki, Pekka; Räntilä, Aapo (SAGE Publications, 2022)Previous studies on periodization have led to the view that most athletes fail to peak at major events. These conclusions might be based on definitions of “peak performance” that are too narrow. In this study, a track and ...
Effects of aging and training on sprint performance, muscle structure and contractile function in athletes Korhonen, Marko T. (University of Jyväskylä, 2009)Cross-sectional studies were conducted to examine sprint running, anaerobic energy production and muscle properties in male sprinters aged 17-88 years. In addition, a 20-week training intervention was carried out to determine ...
Acute Neuromuscular and Hormonal Responses to Power, Strength, and Hypertrophic Protocols and Training Background Kotikangas, Johanna; Walker, Simon; Toivonen, Sara; Peltonen, Heikki; Häkkinen, Keijo (Frontiers Media SA, 2022)This study investigated how two slightly different athlete groups would differ in acute neuromuscular and endocrine responses to specific resistance exercise loadings and recovery compared to untrained participants. Power ...
The role of sport-specific play and practice during childhood in the development of adolescent Finnish team sport athletes Forsman, Hannele; Blomqvist, Minna; Davids, Keith; Konttinen, Niiko; Liukkonen, Jarmo (Sage Publications Ltd., 2016)This study sought to understand the role of sport-specific play and practice in the development of adolescent team sport athletes in the Finnish sports development system. Participants were male, 15-year-old soccer (n ¼ ...
Teachers and upper secondary school students' views on the role of teacher feedback in motivating Finnish EFL students to improve their written skills Vornanen, Katariina (2021)Opettajapalaute on merkittävä osa niin opettajien työtä kuin oppilaiden oppimisprosessia. Samalla tavalla myös oppilaiden motivaatio voi olla merkittävä tekijä oppimisen edistymisessä. Tässä tutkimuksessa kartoitetaan ...
