SANTOS, Eduardo  and  JANEIRA, Manuel. Effects of reduced training and specific detraining on vertical jump in young male basketball players. CPD [online]. 2012, vol.12, suppl.1, pp.63-66. ISSN 1989-5879.

The aims of the present study were: to assess and compare the effects of specific detraining and the application of a resistance reduced training program on adolescent male basketball players´ vertical jump ability. After a previous resistance training program, the subjects (n=15) were randomly assigned to a reduced training group (RT=8) and a specific detraining group (DTR=7). During 16 weeks, the DTR group stopped the resistance training program but maintained regular basketball practice. Complementarily to the basketball practice, the RT group was submitted to a reduced resistance training program once-a-week. All the subjects were tested on squat jump (SJ), countermovement jump without arm swing (CMJ), countermovement jump with arm swing (CMJa), and depth jump (DJ), at the beginning (T1); after 4 (T4), 8 (T8), 12 (T12) weeks; and at the conclusion of the 16-week detraining/reduced training periods (T16). The more significant results highlight: a) stability in subjects of both groups; b) similarities on the comparison of specific detraining and reduced training outcomes.

Keywords : Reduced training; specific detraining; basketball.
