Fifteen trained athletes were assessed for postactivation performance enhancement (PAPE) of squat jumps (SJ) and power push-ups (PPU) following upper body activation, lower body activation, upper and lower body activation, and rest. SJ improved similarly across all four conditions. PPU could not be assessed. Since the protocol of SJ and PPU involved upper and lower body activation and caused PAPE in SJ, future work is required to determine if a non-localized PAPE effect exists.
