Author(s): Syed Anwar Ali S and DJ Asath Ali Khan
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of squat jump training on leg strength and explosive power among college men. To achieve the purpose of this study, 20 college men are randomly selected as subjects from the Tamilnadu physical education and Sports University, Chennai, Tamilnadu, India. Their age ranged from 18 to 25 years. The selected participants were randomly divided into two groups such as experimental group underwent squat jump training (n=10) and control group (n=10).Experimental group underwent squat jump training for three alternate days per week and each session lasted for an hour for six week. Control group was not exposed to any specific training but they were participated in regular activities. The data on leg strength and explosive power were collected by administering by wall sit test and standing broad jump. The pre and posttests data were collected on selected criterion variables prior and immediately after the training programme. The pre and post-test scores were statistically examined by the dependent‘t’-test and Analysis of Co-Variance (ANCOVA) for each and every selected variable separately. It was concluded that the squat jump training group had shown significantly improved in leg strength and explosive power. However the control group had not shown any significant improvement on any of the selected variables such as leg strength and explosive power.
