Author(s): Hardeep Kaur Saini
The purpose of this study was to show the relationship in Plyometric and Circuit training on Explosive Strength and Agility of Punjab state Basketball players. The study was delimited to one hundred twenty male basketball players from Punjab. The age of the players ranged from 12 to 16 years. The Explosive Strength and Agility were measured before, mid three-week training period and after six-week training period. The players of Experimental group were trained for six days per week on alternative days (Plyometric Training on Monday, Wednesday and Friday whereas Circuit Training on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday). The Explosive strength was measured through standing long jump, Agility was measured through shuttle run 10×10 yards before, mid and after a six-week training period. Correlation of the variables was calculated. However, Experimental Group showed a sign of improvement than control group in criterion variables. Results of this study showed significant difference between pre-test, mid-test and post-test of Experimental group on dependent measurements (p<0.05).
