Author(s): Nithin Rajan and Ahamed Faiz PA
The purpose of the study was to find out the of plyometric training on selected bio motor abilities of Pondicherry university basketball players. To achieve the study thirty basketball players form Pondicherry University, studying in various departments were randomly selected as subjects. They were divided into two equal groups and each group consisted od 15 subjects. Group I underwent plyometric training for three days per week for twelve, weeks and group II acted as control who did not participate any special training apart from the regular curricular activities.The subjects were tested on selected criterion variables such as leg strength, speed, cardio-respiratory endurance and flexibility at prior to and immediately after the training period. The selected criterion variables such as leg strength was measured by using leg lift with dynamometer, speed was measured by conducting 50 meters dash, cardio-respiratory endurance was measured by using John Cooper’s 12 minutes run/walk test and flexibility was measured by using sit and reach test. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to find out the significant difference if any, between groups on each selected criterion variables separately. In all the cases, .05 level of confidence was fixed to test the significance, which was considered as an appropriate.
