AUTHOR(S): Chandrachooda M and Dr. K Sekar Babu
The main latitude of this training is to increase participant work and skill competences and to develop strong motor qualities. This study was designed to find out the influence of plyometric training on agility among college men. For this purpose, twenty four (n=24) male students from the affiliated colleges of Bangalore University, Bengaluru during the year 2016-17 were selected as subjects at random and the selected subjects were divided randomly into two groups namely experimental and control groups of twelve (n=12) participants each. The age of the selected subjects ranged from 18 to 25 years. The training period was limited to twelve weeks and for three days per week. The plyometric training was selected as independent variable and agility was selected as dependent variable. All the participants were tested two days before and immediately after the experimental period on the selected dependent variable. The obtained data from the experimental and control groups before and after the experimental period were statistically analyzed with dependent ‘t’-test and analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). The level of confidence was fixed at 0.05 level for all the cases to test the hypothesis. The results of the study indicated that there was significant difference between experimental and control groups on the development of agility. Hence, the plyometric training had influence on agility among college men.
