Effect of high intensity plyometric training on selected motor fitness variables among soccer players
Author(s): Dr. Jackson Sutharsingh
The purpose of the study was to find out effect of 6 weeks of high intensity plyometic training on speed and agility among soccer players. To achieve the purpose of the study thirty subjects (N=30) were randomly selected as a subjects from Chennai. The subjects age ranged between 18 to 25 years. The selected subjects were randomly divided into two equal groups of 15 each, such as experimental and control group. The experimental group participated in the high intensity plyometic training for thrice in a week for 6 weeks, one session per day, each section lasted 45minutes, The control group did not participate in any kind of special training programme apart from the daily physical activities. The speed and agility was measured by 30m dash and shuttle run test. The subjects of two groups were tested on selected variables prior and immediately after the training period. The collected data were analysed statistically through analyze of covariance (ANCOVA) to find the significance difference. The 0.05 level of confidence was fixed to test the level of significance difference, the result of the study showed that systematic practice of high intensity plyometic training improved the speed and agility among soccer players.
