Effect of plyometric training on agility of tribal footballers
Author(s): Dr. Shantanu Mistri
Abstract:
The purpose of the study was to access the effectiveness of plyometric exercise in developing agility of tribal footballers. Forty six tribal footballers (age 19.17±1.23 years; height 165.14±3.46 cm and weight 58.38±4.32 kg) voluntarily took part in the experiment as subjects. They were randomly divided into two groups - Experimental and Control. Experimental group practiced plyometric training for 6 weeks with 2-day sessions per week along with their regular football practice. Control group carried out only their regular football practice. For measuring agility 4×10m shuttle run test was conducted prior to and after 6 weeks intervention period. Pair T-Test was used to calculate the acquired data on agility. Level of significance was fixed at 0.05 level. Result revealed that experimental group significantly improved their agility after 6 weeks plyometric intervention but the improvement of control group was not significant.
