Effect of plyometric exercises on jumping ability of school going children
Author(s): Mudeser Muzafer and Khurshid Ahmad Hurrah
Abstract:
Introduction: Jumping exercises are involved in anaerobic exercises. Players who do jumping exercises regularly, have chances of strong bone density, good coordination and balance, good respiratory health and muscle tone. Long jump is involved in track & field events. In one attempt long jump combines strength, agility and speed to cross more and more distance from the take-off spot. The researcher was with the aim to find out the effect of plyometric exercises on jumping ability of Govt. Upper Primary school Chewakhurad children.
Materials and Methods: Data was collected with the help of two assistants on 60 male students (Age 8 ± 15 years) at long jump pit of the school. The sixty students were divided by the researcher into 2 groups (Thirty in Exp group & thirty in Control group). The researcher prepared a six week training program before start of his research. The training instruction was given every day by the researcher before start of the training in the school. The researcher collected the data by using Purposive sampling method. The researcher selected Long jump variable for his collection of data. The data was analysed using descriptive and t test.
Results: The mean value & standard deviation for Control and Exp group (Pre-test) was 3.44#3.45 & 0.31#0.34 in relation to Long jump. The mean value & S.D for Control and Exp group (Post-test) was 3.47#3.94 & 0.28#0.20 respectively, in relation to Long jump. Calculated t-ratio for control group was found 0.39, where as calculated t-ratio for experimental group was found 6.90 in relation to Long jump.
Conclusions: Significant effectiveness of plyometric exercises on jumping ability with respect to long jump among school children of Govt. Upper Primary School Chewakhurad was found.
