    Postactivation performance enhancement (PAPE) is a principle that suggests that an acute bout of high intensity voluntary exercise will be followed by an improvement in strength, power, and speed of a subsequent task. This study intended to demonstrate how a maximal vertical jump can enhance the outcome of a subsequent vertical jump compared to a multiple jump series and a control.In a randomised controlled, double blind trial, adult professional soccer players (n = 69) undertook maximal vertical jumps at baseline and at 2 and 6 minutes post-intervention after 1 of 3 interventions; 2 repetitions of a maximal vertical jump (VJ), 40 repetitions of a multiple jump series (MJ) or a walking control (CON).All baseline outcomes were similar between all the groups. Relative to the baseline there was a significant improvement for VJ in jump height and power output at 2 minutes of 1.89cm and 114.45W and relative to the baseline, MJ also had a significant improvement at 2 minutes of 1.51cm and 91.60W. By 6 minutes both groups had reverted to baseline values. There was no change in CON across the experiment and no significant difference between CON and the interventions.These findings suggests that 2 maximal vertical jumps may enhance the outcome of a subsequent maximal vertical jump after 2 minutes and as much as a series of 40 jumps. However, these enhancements were not sustained for a further 4 minutes in either group.
