Details Consecutive rebound jump (RJ) training with simultaneous electromyostimulation (EMS) of the calf muscles was performed. Twenty‐three men were divided into control, EMS, and non‐EMS groups; the latter two groups performed consecutive two‐leg RJ training every other day for 3 weeks. EMS was applied over the gastrocnemius muscles of both legs during jumping in the EMS group. RJ training with EMS significantly increased all types of jump height and the maximum voluntary isometric ankle plantar flexion (MVIC) torque in the dorsiflexion position and induced kinesthetic sensations of lightness and bounciness during jumps. Achilles tendon stiffness also tended to increase. However, the EMS caused temporary soreness in the distal myotendinous junction of the gastrocnemius muscle.
