Acute effects of whole body vibration on muscle activity, strength and power

Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, 20(2), 257–261, 2006

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of a single bout of Whole Body Vibration on isometric squat and countermovement jump performance. Whole Body Vibration resulted in a significantly higher jump height during the countermovement jump immediately following vibration, as compared with the sham condition.

Conclusion: Whole Body Vibration may be a potential warm-up procedure for increasing vertical jump height.
