A Study on the Effect of Plyometric exercises for development of Speed in 50 M Back Stroke in Swimming.


Author(s): Prof. Rajesh Kumar

Abstract: Plyometrics are designed for the maximum generation of force by your muscles in the shortest amount of time possible. Backstroke in swimming is referred to the long-axis strokes, as you are rotating on the long-axis of your body while swimming. The purpose of the present study to find out the effect of Plyometric exercises for the development of speed in Back Stroke style in swimming. The sample for the present study consists of 20 Male Swimmers of Hyderabad out of which 10 are experimental group and 10 are controlled group. Plyometric Exercises such as hopping, bounding, chest pass, Power drop, box jumps, tuck jumps etc were given to the experimental group for six weeks. Pre Test and Post Test were conducted 50 M Back Style Swimming to assess the speed. This study shows that due to the Plyometric training there is an improvement of the experimental group in the 50 M back stroke. Swimming compare to the controlled group. Plyometric training is essential for elite swimming performance. To optimize the benefit of land-based training, you must select exercises with mechanical relevance to the swimming action, particularly those movements which propel the swimmer through the water, such as the arm pull and leg kick.
