OLIVEIRA DA SILVA, Laline. Dynamics of changes in jump shot performance and its relationship with increased neuromuscular power in women´s basketball. CPD [online]. 2012, vol.12, suppl.1, pp.13-16. ISSN 1989-5879.

The aim of this study was to analyze the dynamics of changes in the jump shot indicator (ITA) by means of kinematics adjustments and the correlation of these adjustments with increased neuromuscular power (ANMP) in women´s basketball. Therefore, sixteen professional athletes (mean age of 22.49 ±5.2 years; body weight 71.42 ±11.47 kg; height 180.12± 10.25cm) of a team in the Brazilian League of Women´s Basketball were selected. They were divided into two groups, and each group received its own training protocol on muscle power (endurance) in the course of eight weeks, and their ITA and ANMP were evaluated in six steps during and after the intervention in the anthropometric variables, muscle power of upper and lower limbs and ITA. The results showed a significant increase in ANMP (p<0.05) in the group that received a training program of selective load compared to the group that received a training program of concentrated load. This significant difference reflected in the degree of correlation (p<0.001) of the variables of the selective load group compared to the concentrated load group, thus promoting different kinematics adjustments of ITA in the groups. We concluded that the group that received the training protocol of selective load was more efficient regarding jump shot performance and this was directly related to increased neuromuscular power in this group.
