Complex training: The effect of exercise selection and training status on postactivation potentiation in rugby league players (2017)
Journal Article
Scott, D. J., Ditroilo, M., & Marshall, P. (2017). Complex training: The effect of exercise selection and training status on postactivation potentiation in rugby league players. Journal of strength and conditioning research, 31(10), 2694-2703. https://doi.org/10.1519/JSC.0000000000001722

This study compared the postactivation potentiation (PAP) response of the hex bar deadlift (HBD) and back squat (BS) exercises. The PAP response between different levels of athletes was also compared. Ten professional and 10 amateur rugby league play...
