Effects of HIIT and Plyometric Program on the Performance of Young Judokas

Spread the knowledge!


The use of inertial and physiological sensors in a sport such as judo is scarce to date. The information provided by these sensors would allow practitioners to have a better understanding of sports performance, which is necessary for an accurate training prescription. The purpose of this study was to use inertial and physiological sensors in order to investigate the effect of a plyometric and high-intensity interval training (HIIT) training program on Special Judo Fitness Test (SJFT) performance and speed of execution of throws in young judokas. A total of 32 participants were divided into two groups: experimental and control. The intervention consisted of six sessions with a duration of 60 min for 3 weeks. Physiological sensors collected heart rate data to assess the Special Judo Fitness Test, and inertial sensors collected angular velocity. The results show a significant decrease in the SJFT index (Score pre: 22.27 ± 2.73; Score post: 19.65 ± 1.70; p ≤ 0.05; d = 0.61) and a significant increase in the angular velocity of the X-axis (Pre: 320.87 ± 51.15°/s; Post: 356.50 ± 40.47°/s; p ≤ 0.05; d = 0.45) and Y-axis (Pre: 259.40 ± 41.99°/s; Post: 288.02 ± 65.12°/s; p ≤ 0.05; d = 0.31) in the experimental group. In conclusion, this study demonstrates that using inertial and physiological sensors allowed us to analyze the effect that a high-intensity interval training program and plyometrics had on the performance of young judokas. Strength and conditioning coaches should consider these results because including plyometric training and HIIT in judokas’ workout programming can be especially positive for eliciting increases in performance. However, future training interventions should investigate the training adaptations to longer interventions.

  • I have figured out some considerations through your website post. One other stuff I would like to talk about is that there are plenty of games available and which are designed in particular for toddler age kids. They include things like pattern acknowledgement, colors, animals, and shapes. These generally focus on familiarization as opposed to memorization. This will keep little ones engaged without having a sensation like they are learning. Thanks

  • Thanks a ton for your post. I want to say that the cost of car insurance varies greatly from one policy to another, since there are so many different issues which give rise to the overall cost. Such as, the brand name of the automobile will have a huge bearing on the charge. A reliable ancient family car or truck will have a lower priced premium compared to a flashy racecar.

  • Thanks for your posting. What I want to point out is that when you are evaluating a good on the net electronics go shopping, look for a web-site with entire information on key elements such as the privacy statement, safety details, payment options, and other terms plus policies. Generally take time to look at help in addition to FAQ sections to get a better idea of what sort of shop will work, what they are capable of doing for you, and ways in which you can make best use of the features.

  • Thanks for this article. I’d personally also like to express that it can often be hard when you are in school and simply starting out to initiate a long credit standing. There are many college students who are just trying to make it and have a long or good credit history can often be a difficult issue to have.

  • Wow, marvelous blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your site is fantastic, let alone the content!

  • Together with almost everything that seems to be building inside this subject matter, all your perspectives are generally quite exciting.

It would seem to everybody that your opinions are generally not entirely rationalized and in fact you are yourself not really wholly convinced of the point. In any case I did take pleasure in reading it.
