AUTHOR(S): Dr. R Sevi, Dr. M Muthuraj and Dr. K Palanisamy
The purpose of the study was to find out the impact of plyometric and resistance training on leg strength of school athletes. To achieve the purpose of the study, forty five school athletes were selected as subjects. The subjects were aged between 14 to 15 years. The subjects were divided into three groups (fifteen each) namely plyometric training group – I, resistance training group – II and control group – III. The data collected from the three groups prior to and post experimentation were statistically analyzed to find out the significant difference if any, by applying the analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). When the obtained ‘F’ ratio value was significant the Scheffe’s test was applied as post hoc test to determine the paired mean differences, if any. In all the cases statistical significance was fixed at 0.05 levels. The result showed that there was a significant improvement on leg strength of the school athletes.
