Author(s): Dr. Anu Sharma and Deepak Hooda
Explosive strength plays an important role throughout life and is also vitally important in old age. Explosive muscle strength can be defined as the rate of rise in contractile force at the onset of contraction, i.e. the rate of force development exerted within the early phase of rising muscle force (Aagaard, Simonsen, Andersen, Magnusson, & Dyhre-Poulsen, 2002) . The aim of present study is to compare the various games players on the basis of age groups with regard to their explosive strength. To accomplish the study, purposive sampling technique has been used. For this purpose, total 180 male players were selected as subjects. Six age group categories were profiled and 30 players were selected from each age group category. The selected subjects were between the age group of 10 to 15 years. The subjects were selected from the Bhiwani district of Haryana state. Standing broad jump test was applied to measure the explosive strength. The measurements are calculated in cm. To find out the difference in explosive strength, independent sample‘t’ test was applied through Statistical Product and Service Solutions (SPSS) version 20.0. The level of significance was set at 0.05. The results of the present study shows that significant difference was found between the age group of ten and eleven years, fourteen and fifteen years while no significant difference was found between the eleven and twelve, twelve and thirteen, thirteen and fourteen years age group players with regard to their explosive strength.
