The aim of the present study was to investigate the acute effect of (a) a drop jump protocol with 1 set/5 repetitions and (b) a drop jump protocol with 2 sets/5 repetitions on countermovement jump height performance in volleyball players at recovery times of (a) 2 min, (b) 6 min, and (c) 12 min. Subjects were ten male Division I college volleyball players. They were instructed to perform a pre-test of three countermovement jumps (CMJs) and then randomly assigned to perform (a) a drop jump protocol with 1 set/5 repetitions and (b) a drop jump protocol with 2 sets/5 repetitions. After the drop jump, three CMJs were completed in 2, 6, and 12 minutes. A two-way repeated measures ANOVA was used to examine the differences between training volumes and recovery times in CMJ height (HCMJ) and maximum ground reaction force (GRF). Both drop jump training volumes significantly increased the HCMJ. The HCMJ at post-2min was greater than those at the pre-test (p=.008), post-6min (p=.004) and post-12min (p=.002). In addition, the HCMJ at post-6min was significantly greater than that at post-12min (p=.018). Drop jumps in lower volume (e.g. within ten repetitions) and short recovery time (e.g. within two minutes) can produce a positive acute effect on countermovement jump performance.
