Effect of plyometric training with and without weight on breath holding time of hand ball players


Author(s): Dr. K Palanisamy

Abstract: The purpose of the study was to find out the relative effects of plyometric training with and without handheld weights on breath holding time of men hand ballplayers. For this purpose, sixty men handball Players who had participated in inter collegiate handball tournaments from Annamalai University were randomly selected as subjects. The selected subjects were divided at random into three groups of twenty each (n=20). Group I underwent Plyometric training with handheld weights, Group II underwent Plyometric training without handheld weights and Group III acted as Control. The subjects carried out their respective training programmes for three days per week for a period of twelve weeks. The data obtained from the experimental groups before and after the experimental period were statistically analyzed with dependent ‘t’-test and Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). Whenever the ‘F’ ratio for adjusted post-test means was found to be significant, the Scheffe’s Post hoc test was applied to determine the paired mean differences. The level of confidence was fixed at.05 level for all the cases. The result of the study concluded that Plyometric training with handheld weights is better than Plyometric training without handheld weights in improving Breath holding time.
