CHANGES IN THE POWER OF THE VERTICAL JUMP POSTERIOR TO HIIT TRAINING IN AMATEUR BASKETBALL PLAYERS

Resumen:
The versatility of training in high-performance athletes has given way to the development of protocols based on aerobic exercises, in order to enhance the physiological capabilities of these, thus achieving sporting excellence in the different disciplines. Currently, high-intensity aerobic interval training (HIIT) has been the basis for obtaining substantial improvements in athletes, not only at a professional level but also at an amateur level. For this reason, is important to identify how this type of training enhances the vertical jump in amateur basketball players. The sample consisted of 30 persons (Age: 25.46 years, weight 78.16 Kg, size 176.32 cms) subjected to 10 weeks of HIIT training, without interfering in their normal practice sessions. The evaluation of the results (pre and post intervention) was made one week before and one week after the application of HIIT, respectively. The data was analyzed with the Shapiro Wilk test to check the normality of the data, and then, using the Student t-test to compare the pre and post intervention values. The results were statistically significant for time (p<0.01) and height (p<0.001) variables, showing that there are changes in these parameters of the vertical jump after HIIT training The power and speed variables were not statistically significant.
