Author(s): Vivek R and Dr. R Ram Mohan Singh
The purpose of the study was to identify the effect of Plyometric training on explosive strength of volleyball players. Plyometrics is also known as jumping training. It is a training technique designed to improve muscular power and explosiveness. For this purpose thirty players were randomly selected from the Spider Volleyball Club in Puducherry and their age ranged from 14-18 years. The selected subjects were randomly assigned to experimental group A and control group B. Each group consisted of 15 subjects each. Group A acted as experimental group and were subjected to trained for six weeks and group B acted as control group. The variables selected for this study was upper body explosive strength and lower body explosive strength. The testing tool used for measuring upper body explosive strength was 2kg medicine ball throw and for lower body explosive strength standing broad jump test was administered. The results of pre and post-test were statistically treated by using ANOVA.
