AUTHOR(S): K Sinikumar and Dr. P Aurther Daniel
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of plyometric training on speed and explosive power among teenage boys. To achieve this purpose, 40 teenage boys were randomly selected from St. Francis Higher Secondary School, Vavarai, Tamil Nadu, India. The age of the subjects were ranged from 15 to 18 years. The subjects were further classified at random into two equal groups of 20 subjects each. Group I underwent plyometric training for 6 weeks three days per week and group II act as control group. The selected criterion variables namely speed, and explosive power were assessed before and after the training period. The collected data were statistically analyzed by using Dependent t test and Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA). When the F ratio of the adjusted posttest mean was found to be significant, Scheffe’s post hoc test was employed to find out the paired mean difference. All the data were analyzed using SPSS statistical package. From the results of the study it was found that there was a significant improvement on speed and explosive power, among the experimental group when compared with the control.
