Investigate a hidden strategy that may acutely enhance run performance.
Post-activation potentiation (PAP) has been shown to improve anaerobic performance (e.g., vertical jump, sprinting, etc.). However, very little is known about how PAP influences aerobic performance. We are examining whether PAP improves middle distance running performance and determinants thereof.
Students will present the data at the School of Public Health and Health Professions Perry Poster Day and/or a regional or national conference.
