ABSTRACT:
The research aimed to identify the effect of exercises using weights and plyometrics in developing the explosive ability and some offensive skills of young basketball players. An experimental approach with two equal groups was used. The research sample was represented by young basketball players in Al-Hilla Club, who numbered (14) players and were randomly divided into two groups. An experimental group with 7 players for each group. The first experimental group used plyometric exercises, and the second experimental group used weight exercises. The time plan for the training curricula included (24) training units for each group, distributed over (8) weeks, three training units per week on days (Saturday, Monday, Wednesday). The high-intensity interval training method and the repetitive training method were used, with a training intensity that ranged between (85-95% of the maximum intensity of the player’s performance. One of the most important conclusions reached by the researchers is that the plyometric exercises used in the research have a positive effect in developing the explosive ability of the muscles and legs, which was reflected in the skill performance of the players.
