Effect of plyometric training on vertical jumping ability among college men volleyball players


Dr. G Kumaran, Javaid Ahmad Sheikh

The present study was to determine the effect of plyometric training on vertical jumping ability of college men volleyball players. Twenty male students (n = 20) were randomly selected as subjects and the age were ranged between 18 and 24 years. The selected subjects were randomly assigned into two equal groups such as training group (TG) and the control group (CG) for the strengths of ten (n = 10) each. Experimental training group underwent respective plyometric training programme for twelve weeks for three days per week and a session on each day. The control group did not involve in any special training apart from their regular activities. The vertical jumping ability was taken as a criterion variable for the present study and it was measured by standing vertical jump. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to analyse the collected data. The results revealed that that the plyometric training was made significant improvement (p ≤ 0.05) in jumping ability of the selected subjects. The level of confidence was fixed at 0.05 in all cases.
