Celebration of Scholarship and Creative Activity 2021
The purpose of this research is to examine and understand the effects of timing, program design, and factors in complex training. The concept of complex training is the combination of traditional resistance training and plyometric training which aims to improve strength and power. With 16 participants, a complex training program will be completed while 15 participants complete a traditional resistance training. All participants will be assessed using maximum squat, vertical jump, sprint stair power test, and anthropometrics. Once completed, a 9-week training program will be performed that increases intensity and workload. The assessments will be reevaluated to determine significant differences from pre-program to post-program. This will determine differences in power, speed, and strength. All the differences will determine if the rest periods and program design are beneficial for individuals. Hypothesize that the complex group will perform better or the same as the control group. The importance of this research is the timing of rest periods along with the exercises compared to prior studies. Another important factor is the participants are collegiate wrestlers. Due to COVID-19, the experiment will be postponed until circumstances change.
