Effectiveness of plyometric exercises on jumping ability among students belonging to backward areas
AUTHOR(S): Khurshid Ahmad Hurrah and Aftab Ahmad Jan
Jumping is included in anaerobic exercises. People who exercised regularly with jumping exercises have strong bone density, good balance and coordination, good respiratory health and muscle tone. While jumping, our body digs into the stored energy also. Long jump is included in track and field events. Long jump combines all the strength, agility and speed in an attempt to cover more and more distance from the take-off point. The aim of this study was to find out the effect of plyometric exercises on jumping ability among collegiate students belonging to backward areas in Govt. Degree College Chararisharief. Materials and Methods: Data was individually collected on 60 backward area male students (Age 18±25 years) at long jump pit of Govt. Degree College Chararisharief ground before and after the six week training program. The subjects were divided into two groups (30 in Experimental group and 30 in control group). The researcher prepares a six week training program before started his research. The instruction of training was given by researcher every day before starting the training in Govt. Degree College Chararisharief. Purposive sampling method was used for collection of data. Only one variable was selected for collection of data, i,e, Long jump. The data was analysed using descriptive and t test. Results: The mean value and standard deviation of Control and Experimental group (Pre-test) was 3.52#3.55 & 0.33#0.37 in relation to Long jump. The mean value and standard deviation of Control and Experimental group (Post test) was 3.51#3.91 & 0.33#0.21 respectively, in relation to Long jump. Calculated t–ratio of Pre-test was found 0.70, where as calculated t–ratio of Post test was found 4.60 in relation to Long jump. Conclusions: Significant effect of plyometric exercises on jumping ability with respect to long jump among backward areas in Govt. Degree College Chararisharief was found.
