Does sprint speed increase via maximal jumping prior to sprint performance?

Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements

 

Scientific article – The preparation of an Article for publication: Prepare an article for publication in an academic journal utilising the  Journal of Sport Science’s published refereed guidelines, with a supporting critical reflective report detailing the development process and challenges arising.
My chosen topic-Amongst  research into maximizing performance continually being studied, my research study will be to discover whether maximal jumping prior to sprinting enhances overall performance. Till, K. A., & Cooke, C (2009) states that the initial bout of heavy lifting summits the nervous system for activity, making it operate at its peak. The study will explore the rate of force production, jump height and speed comparing the values in order to understand whether post activation effect created by maximal body weight jumps will enhance performance. Research also shows that the correlation between the rate of force production during an explosive movement and performance. It can then be theorized that maximal jumping prior would produce an increase performance on jump height and sprint speed. The hypothesis is that jumping will cause a post activation potentiation (PAP) response within the muscle. This will positively effect their sprint times, as the muscles will remain more activated after their jumps allowing faster sprint speeds. This study will help us to understand the pap response and if it is possible to elicit a pap response through maximal jumping, this will also be a protocol that can be put into place for athletes during the warm up before training/competition.
Participants
The sample will consist of undergraduate students who represent Middlesex  university athletics team 15 participants who are either 100/200 metres sprinter. Aged 18-25 
Materials/ Tools
Speed gates to measure sprint time, isokinetic  force plate to measure rate of force production, measuring tape to measure the standing long jump. 
Procedure
Participants will first complete a standardized warm up will be completed to ensure that the subjects will be mentally and physically ready for the test. Subjects will first complete two maximal countermovement  jumps on force plate with 2 minutes break in between, this will then be followed by 15 minutes recovery time then two trials of 30 meters sprint which will be recorded with speed gates in order to validate the results. First trial will be completed then subjects will be given 15 minutes recovery time then complete trial two. This will give my study baseline measurements. Sprinting is maximal exercise and places stress on the body therefore it is essential sufficient time is given for subjects to recover. 
Test day 2 will require my subjects to perform five maximal standing long jumps with 45 seconds in between; this is because post activation potentiation  can only be activated by heavy exertions. Subjects will then perform two maximal countermovement  jumps with two-minute rest, this will be done using a force plate in order to measure rate of force production (RFD). Followed by two trials of 30 metres sprint, completed in a self-selected time between 6-12 minutes after jumping. These two tests will have to be performed with the strict time constraints to allow recovery the energy systems and to stop lactic acid or muscular fatigue becoming a factor in the readings taken in the two conditions ensuring the exact same rest time as in the baseline measurements to ensure reliability and validity of my study. 
The sample will involve 15 undergraduates who compete for the Middlesex  university athletics team. Before the participants begin the study I will ensure that each participant will complete and sign both consent forms and physical activity readiness questionnaire (PAR-Q) which will determine the safety as well as the potential danger of exercising for the participants according to their health history questions. Participants will give their anthropometry  measurements (age, weight, height (cm), foot length (cm), shank length (cm), thigh length (cm). The participants will complete tests baseline and intervention test in order to identify and compare rate of improvement if any. 

The tests, which will be used, are: vertical countermovement  jump, standing long jump, 30 meters sprint and isokinetic analysis using a force plate. The main aim of this study will be to explore whether the rate of production, jump height and speed is affected when post activation potentiation is activated. This will be repeated measure in order to identify whether performance will be enhanced when pap effect is activated. Before any exercise is completed a standardized warm up will be completed to ensure that the subjects will be mentally and physically ready for the test. Subjects will first complete two maximal countermovement jumps on force plate with 2 minutes break in between, this will then be followed by 15 minutes recovery time then two trials of 30 meters sprint which will be recorded with speed gates in order to validate the results. First trial will be completed then subjects will be given 15 minutes recovery time then complete trial two. This will give my study baseline measurements. Sprinting is maximal exercise and places stress on the body therefore it is essential sufficient time is given for subjects to recover. 

Test day 2 will require my subjects to perform five maximal standing long jumps with 45 seconds in between; this is because post activation potentiation can only be activated by heavy exertions. Subjects will then perform two maximal countermovement jumps with two-minute rest, this will be done using a force plate in order to measure rate of force production (RFD). Followed by two trials of 30 metres sprint, completed in a self-selected time between 6-12 minutes after jumping. These two tests will have to be performed with the strict time constraints to allow recovery the energy systems and to stop lactic acid or muscular fatigue becoming a factor in the readings taken in the two conditions ensuring the exact same rest time as in the baseline measurements to ensure reliability and validity of my study.

Business proposal/ networking/advocacy

medi+WORLD    AUSTRALIA provides Medical Education and is a Publisher of Medical journals, especially Middle East journals.

The business proposal that I need to put together is to propose to the Jordanian Ministry of Health or Jordanian Medical Association. to develop a network or some type of calibration with medi+WORLD MMU AUSTRALIA that provides Medical Education and Publishing of Medical journals, especially Middle East journals, for the members of the Jordanian Ministry of Health or Jordanian Medical Association to provide them with Australian Standard Strategies that will be proposed providing them with medical education online and hands on with appropriate facilities, supervisor, educators within their homeland country to reduce the cost . Currently Jordanian doctors are using our services at full cost the benefits of the business arrangement is to enhance and provide the member of the Jordanian Ministry of Health or Jordanian Medical Association at a cost effective by developing the network between the Jordanian Ministry of Health or Jordanian Medical Association and medi+WORLD AUSTRALIA and at the same time to help Jordanian doctors if the wish to migrate to Australian or travel to study in Australian they will not find any difficulties to Adapting to the Australian system and passing the Australian medical examination

MMU has been set up to provide Governments, Ministries of Health and health departments and education authorities, with access to highest standard medical education at greatly reduced costs due to the combination of multimedia and distance education. MMU therefore provides the opportunity to bring countries and doctors up to modern medical standards at reduced costs and shorter timeframes.

MMU already provides full national medical education services and works with key education and government stakeholders.

While MMU offers traditional medical courses via distance education – thus alleviating costs of travel and accommodation – it also provides strategic medical education and

intensive medical education to overcome global shortages of trained medical personnel. All programs are authored by top medical academics in their field, mainly from developed nations and reviewed for doctors and patients in developing nations.

Costs to participating practitioners are greatly reduced due to strategic delivery methods, while maintaining and promoting highest global standards.

The three tier pricing structure is based on World Bank 2005 Purchase Price Parity (PPP) and are indicated as:

Low Income nations
Middle Income nations
High Income nations
Conversely, and this is our biggest area, we provide world CME on a national basis. This is to bring national doctors up to developed world standard plus, provide what we deem as the 20-30% missing medical education. Medical education in disease (e.g. leprosy) that no longer exists in developed countries and medical education where the doctor has no diagnostic equipment and the patient cannot afford the tests or medicines prescribed.

World CME addresses these issues and our Nepal program includes about 30% of such CME on local (socio-economic) conditions. It also respects all cultures; religions etc .Pakistan is now also using the same programs. Their medical educators are reviewing it first (we recommend a slight re-word using local names, terminology, etc) and they have found that where the CME has not equated to the practice of medicine in Pakistan they have decided to change the practice, not the education. This is a heartening result.

We have also done a national CM program for Indonesia and we did one for Iraqi doctors ( during ‘the war’) but we couldn’t get it in on a national basis – we just let them use it for their own self education, and we set up a laptops.

We had official national trials with the CME program in Nepal. Results were interesting. The doctors had access to a laptop or computer to do the electronic based programs but the biggest deterrent was/is that the power only stays on for about 4 hours a day. The computer based CME was deemed a success.

The (best) formula we found for authoring the ‘missing CME’ was using western educated doctors who had spent at least 5 years working in the Nepal medical system.

The other thing we do/have done – we have just completed a Moodle version of it and have about 2,500 universities worldwide using it as formal oncology curriculum – is the ASO program we do for the UN. we mention this as it was mostly was a strategic project. Our original multimedia program had to be able to ‘play on any computer in the world’ and the most interesting aspect was that it had no locality/geography and the most interesting brief was that we had to ‘educate without teaching’ and assume no prior knowledge. To do something for Jordan we really need to look at all sorts of demographics, needs surveys etc (or conduct them) to do it excellently.
