Effect on package of low impact plyometric exercise on selected performance related fitness variables among volleyball playersAuthor(s):
The purpose of this study was to find out the effect on package of low impact plyometric exercise on selected performance related fitness variables among volleyball players. To achieve the purpose of these study 20 male volleyball players who were studying in the department of Physical Education and Sports Sciences, Annamalai University during the academic year 2014-2015 were selected as subjects. The age of the subjects were ranged from 18 to 25years. The selected subjects were divided into two groups of ten subjects each. Apart from the physical education curriculum activities each of them that are Group I underwent low impact plyometric exercise on each practice session before the game and Group II has gone only for the volleyball practice without any plyometric exercise. The experimental group underwent low impact plyometric for 5 days per week for 12 weeks. The low impact plyometric exercise workout includes ankle hops in place, front to back hops over a single cone, side to side hops over a single cone, one leg front to back speed drill over a line, one leg side to side speed drill over a line, two foot scissors dot mat drill, two foot round the world dot mat drill, continuous cone hops over consecutive cones and continuous sideways cone hops over consecutive cones. Each of the above drills was done for 2 sets with 12 repetition each exercise.The data were collected on selected criterion variables namely performance related fitness variables such as strength endurance and explosive power were measured by using sit ups and sergeant jump respectively before (pre) and after the 12 weeks of training(post). Analysis of covariance was applied to find out significant difference if any between the experimental and control group.Pages: 20-22 | 815 Views 31 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
