Abstract

Increased vertical jump (VJ) and peak power (PP) are essential in many sports. Using whole-body vibration (WBV) before a VJ may enhance jump height and pp output as indicated by previous research. However, variation in wbv platforms, frequencies, amplitudes, exposure times, and rest times must be considered. This article provides coaches and practitioners with a short review of literature on the effect of wbv on VJ and a guide on how to implement an acute bout of wbv before an acute bout of VJ performance.
