Abstract

THE TRAINING OF HORIZONTAL PROPULSIVE FORCE GENERATION IS ONE ASPECT OF MANY SPORTS THAT IS NOT EASILY SIMULATED WITH TRADITIONAL GYM-BASED RESISTANCE TRAINING METHODS, WHICH PRINCIPALLY WORK THE LEG MUSCULATURE IN A VERTICAL DIRECTION. GIVEN THAT MOST MOTION INVOLVES AN INTEGRATION OF BOTH VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL FORCE PRODUCTION, TRANSFERENCE OF GYM-BASED STRENGTH GAINS MAY BE IMPROVED IF EXERCISES WERE USED THAT INVOLVED BOTH VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL FORCE PRODUCTION.
