Abstract

This study evaluated the effect of remote voluntary contractions (RVC) on depth jump performance. Subjects performed the depth jump in a RVC condition and a condition without RVC (NO-RVC). Ground reaction force (GRF), impulse (I), and reactive strength index (RSI) were assessed with a force platform. Data were analyzed using a two way ANOVA. Analysis of GRF showed no significant main effects for RVC condition (p = 0.46) and no interaction for RVC condition and gender (p = 0.11). Analysis of I showed no significant main effects for RVC condition (p = 0.99) and no interaction for RVC condition and gender (p = 0.61). Analysis of RSI showed no significant main effects for RVC condition (p = 0.78) and no interaction for RVC condition and gender (p = 0.20). Remote voluntary contractions appear to offer no performance benefits for exercises such as the depth jump.
