Author(s): Ameen Navas KP and Dr. K Vaithianathan
This investigation was undertaken to compare the explosive strength and speed between long jumpers and high jumpers. For the purpose of the study, 30 male subjects aged 17 to 25 years were selected as subjects were the subjects of SAI centers and state sports council hostel around Kerala. The selected variables for the study were explosive strength and speed. The test administered to assess the explosive strength standing long jump and to asses speed was 50m dash test were administered. The experimental group was double group design. To find out the significant difference between long jumpers and high jumpers on selected variables, the t-ratio was employed. The level of significant was kept at 0.05 level. The results revealed that, there were significant difference in both explosive strength and speed among the selected groups. The descriptive statistics shows that the long jumpers have more explosive strength and speed compared to the high jumpers.
