COMPARATIVE STUDY OF JUMPING STRENGTH ABILITY OF LEGS BETWEEN UNDER-25(INTER-COLLEGE) VOLLEYBALL AND BASKETBALL PLAYERS
Keywords:jumping strength ability, Basketball, Volleyball, Players
The purpose of the study was to compare the jumping strength ability of legs between under-25 volleyball and basketball players. For this study, a sample of one hundred (N=100) players i.e. Volleyball (NV=50) and Basketball (NB=50), was selected from different colleges affiliated to Panjab University, Chandigarh, India. All the boys were assessed for height, weight and jumping strength ability of legs. The height of the subjects was measured with anthropometric rod to the nearest 0.5 cm. The weight of subjects was measured by using portable weighing machine to the nearest 0.5 kg. The jumping strength ability of the legs was measured by vertical jump test. The independent samples t-test was used to assess the differences between volleyball and basketball players. The results of present study clearly indicated that basketball players had significantly greater power (p<0.05) than volleyball players.
