Recently, vibration has become very popular as a method of exercise and training and drawn attention of researchers. The aim of this study is to analyses the acute affect of vibration applications as a method of exercise and training on performance of jumping.In this study experimental group consists of 25 subjects who are studying at Physical Education and Sports Department of Sakarya University (age 22.2±1.7 years, height 179.2±4.8 cm. body weight 71.5±9.0 kg). This study included a)vibration at density of 35 Hz (3x30 sec.) frequency that result from aerobic exercise that has low density and b)just methods of aerobic exercise (without any vibration) that has low density .Subjects has taken the tests of active and squat jumping after 2 minutes of each application. All applications and tests have been done in nonconsecutive days in a random scheme. In statistical analysis Wilcoxon has been applied in nonparametric scheme.For active vertical jumping; height of jumping, the difference between before and after the application of vibration related to the point of peak power and average power has been found significiant (respectively, p0.05).As a result, it is concluded that vibration that is applied at the range of 35 Hz frequency could increase the performance of acute active jumping.
