Effects of Hex Bar Deadlift Training Loads on Vertical Jump Performance During Complex Training
Jordan L. Cola, Tim Stiroh, Michael A. Figueroa

This research examined different complex training loads and their ability to induce post activation potentiation. 12 recreationally trained participants (23.50 + 3.52 years) performed a hex- bar deadlift for three repetitions at 60 or 80% 1 rep maximum, followed by a four-minute rest. Following the rest interval an akimbo variation vertical jump was performed, followed by an additional four-minute rest interval. This complex training pair was repeated four times and was randomized and counterbalanced. Results showed no significant interactions between vertical jump height and power at baseline, or after 60%, and 80% 1 repetition maximum. However, there were individualistic responses between responders and non-responders. The present results show that during a complex training prescription, hex-bar deadlifts at 60 and 80% were unable to induce postactivation potentiation, which was highly individualized in recreationally trained participants.
