Abstract:
To evaluate the real facts of the Research Problem, the Researcher made an effort to examine the comparative effect of plyometric and weight training on selected skill related fitness variables among women college level cricket players. To achieve the purpose of the study 30 Subjects were from Dr. Mahalingam College of Engineering and Technology (MCET) and Kumaraguru college of Technology (KCT) Coimbatore. Their age ranged from 19 to 23 years. The subjects were assigned in equal two groups. Group No-I from KCT (n=15) named as Plyometric training with Weight Training Group (PWWG) underwent the respective training as it was named and Group No–II (n=15) from MCET acted as control group (CG). The plyometric training with weight training was given to the PWWG for the periods of 12 weeks. The CG was not given any sort of training except their routine Physical activities. The following Skill related fitness variables Reaction Time, Balance and Power were chosen for the study which was measured with standard test items. Pre and post test was conducted on one day one test system with warm-up and warm-down. The reaction time was assessed by nelson hand reaction time test with unit of measurements in seconds balance was assessed by stock balance test with unit of measurements in seconds and power assessed by standing broad jump with unit of measurement in meters. The data collected from the subjects were statistically analyzed using ‘t’ test to find out whether significant mean difference existed at 0.05 level of confidence. This study may help trainers to assess the applicability of plyometric training with weight training to improve skill related physical fitness, one of the most important factors determining the cricket players. Further, the findings confirmed the plyometric training with weight training is suitable protocol to bring out the desirable changes over skill related physical fitness variables of Subjects.
