dc.description.abstractThe primary purpose of this study was to determine the effect that 2 lb and 5 lb hand-held weights had on vertical jump performance as assessed by vertical takeoff velocity. Secondary analyses were conducted to provide additional insight into the observed results. Thirty-one male athletes performed three countermovement jumps (CMJ) with an arm-swing under three different treatment conditions: holding a 2lb hand weight in each hand (CMJ2), holding a 5lb weight in each hand (CMJ5), and without holding onto any weight (CMJ0). All jumps were performed on a forceplate, which permitted the calculation of vertical take-off velocity (vto), average force during the upward jump phase (avgforceup) and the duration of the upward jump phase (timeup). A repeated measures ANOVA was used to test for significant differences between the three treatment conditions for both the primary and secondary analyses. The primary analysis indicated that CMJ2 and CMJ5 exhibited significantly greater take-off velocities and thus, jump heights, than CMJ0. However, CMJ2 and CMJ5 were not significantly different from each other (pen_US
