Brief Summary:
The objective of this study is to know the acute effects of a squat protocol in: 1- lower limb muscle power analyzed by countermovement jump on force platform and upper limb through a bench press with encoder test; 2 - the unipodal postural equilibrium by force platform; 3 - the patellar tendinous thickness measured by ultrasound.

Official Title: Acute Effects of Squat Protocols in Muscular Power, Postural Sway and Tendinous Thickness.
Actual Study Start Date : May 2, 2019
Estimated Primary Completion Date : September 2019
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 2019

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 10x10 squat protocol Other: Squat protocol
60% of 1RM weight for 100 squat reps

Experimental: As Fast As Possible 100 squat protocol Other: Squat protocol
60% of 1RM weight for 100 squat reps




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Muscle power [ Time Frame: 30 minutes ]
    Muscle power of lower limbs measured by countermovement jump on force platform

  2. Patellar thickness [ Time Frame: 60 minutes ]
    Tendon thickness of the patellar tendon measured by ultrasound

  3. Monopodal Postural Sway [ Time Frame: 10 minutes ]
    Monopodal postural balance with open eyes in force platform


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Muscular fatigue [ Time Frame: 30 minutes ]
    Muscle fatigue measured in each resting period by means of a countermoving jump to assess the loss of power.
