Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Inom golfbranschen finns behovet av att alltid förbättra sitt golfspel då konkurrensen är enormt stor inom världseliten. En viktig faktor inom golfen är golfswingen och ju högre klubbhastigheten i själva golfswingen ju länge blir utslaget så länge precisionen är densamma. Klubbhastighet kan förbättras med ökad styrka, och ett sätt som en styrkeökning kan ske kortvarigt är med hjälp av postaktiveringspotentiering (PAP) och därmed påverka ökning av klubbhastigheten.  Syfte: Studiens syfte var att undersöka om genomförandet av en tyngre rotationsövning direkt följt av en golfswing ger en postaktiveringspotentieringseffekt på klubbhastigheten jämfört med bara vila. Metod: En cross-over studie med 2 protokoll, samt 19 testpersoner som jämförde skillnaden i klubbhastighet mellan protokoll 2; en tyngre pre- övning i form av 5 tunga rotationer i Quantum innan 5 golfswingar och protokoll 1; 5 golfswingar med enbart vila som aktiveringsövning. Resultat: Ingen signifikant skillnad i klubbhastighet fanns varken i protokoll 1 med vila som intervention (p=0,65) eller i och protokoll 2 med PAP som intervention (p=0,94). Slutsats: I avsaknad av tidigare studier samt nuvarande studies negativa resultat är det fortfarande okänt huruvida postaktiveringspotentiering existerar i en golfswing och om det kan påverka klubbhastigheten.

 

 

Abstract [en]

Background: Within the golf industry, there is constantly a need to improve the golf game, as competition is high in the world elite. An important factor in golf is the golf swing, the higher club speed, the longer shot if precision is maintained. The club speed can be improved with increased strength, and one way to increase the strength is by adding post activation potentiation (PAP) and thus affecting the club speed. Purpose: The purpose of the study was to investigate whether the implementation of a heavy rotational exercise directly followed by a golf swing gives a post-activation potentiation effect on club speed compared to just resting. Method: A cross- over study with 2 protocols. 19 participants completed protocol number 2; with the content of a heavier pre- exercise rotation in Quantum, performed 5 times followed by 5 golf swings and also protocol 1, with the content of 5 golf swings with exclusively rest as a pre- activation exercise. Results: No significant difference was found in the club speed between protocol 1 with only rest as the intervention (p=0,65) and protocol 2 with PAP as intervention (p=0,94). Conclusion: In the absence of previous studies and with the negative results in the current study, it is still unknown whether post-activation potentiation exists in a golf swing and if it can affect club speed.
