Slow Stretch-Shorten Cycle Characteristics: Gender and Maturation Differences in Singaporean Youths

Slow Stretch-Shorten Cycle Characteristics: Gender and Maturation Differences in Singaporean Youths

This cross-sectional study aims to compare the differences between the countermovement jump (CMJ) and concentric only squat jump (SJ) (no arm swing) and examine the differences and slow SSC ability of youths at different stages of maturation (pre-pubescent, pubescent and post pubescent). Methods: 101 male and 109 female Singaporean youths. It would seem that concentric force/power capabilities are more likely to be influenced by maturation than eccentric force and power. Furthermore it appears that the eccentric capability and thus SSC augmentation is optimal around pubescence and with maturity this ability diminishes to some extent.
