Jumping as a natural stretch-shortening cycle (SSC) muscle action, which is known to enhance muscle output in the final shortening phase (push-off), is compared with the pure shortening action alone .
Sounded like a good one for Wikipedia, but sometimes it's too much even for the free encyclopedia, which offered: "Plyometrics is a type of exercise that utilizes a rapid eccentric movement, followed by a short amortization phase, and then followed by an explosive concentric movement, which enables the synergistic muscles to engage in the myotatic-stretch reflex during the stretch-shortening cycle.
Ten male students of physical education performed 60 s long stretch-shortening cycle (SSC) exercise with maximal intensity and 30 s long concentric (CON) exercise with maximal intensity.
The impairment of muscle function, however, was attenuated when the stretch-shortening cycle was used in vertical jumping performance (Byrne and Eston, 2002).
