EFFECT OF PLYOMETRIC TRAINING ON EXPLOSIVE POWER AMONG MEN FOOTBALL PLAYERS

Dr. I. Karikalan

Abstract


The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of plyometric training on explosive power variables among men football player. To achieve the purpose of the study, twelve (12) college men sprinters were selected randomly as subjects from St.Johns College of Physical Education, Veeravanallur. Their age ranged from 17 to 25 years. The players who are participated in college level sprint events were randomly selected as subjects. The selected subjects underwent plyometric training for alternative three days per week up to six weeks. The selected fitness related components were selected as criterion variable explosive power. The above selected variables were tested by using standardized Test. The sample of the present study has been delimited to the twelve (12) college men sprinters. All the subjects were tested on selected variables prior to and immediately after the training period. Subjects were selected on pre and post test single group design. The results of the study shows that there was significant improvement in the explosive power variable and the analyses were carried out through various statistical technique such as descriptive statistics and Dependent ‘t’ test.
