Effect of land plyometric and sand plyometric training on selected physical and physiological variables among hockey players


Author(s): C Senthil Kumar

Abstract: Modern Hockey demands that all the players should be adapted to all the situations either defending or attacking. The game of hockey now a day is being played in three types of grounds namely gravel, grass and artificial ground. After the introduction of the artificial field the players, coaches and the conditioning experts now understand that the physical variables are playing vital role to reach high level performance in the artificial ground. The purpose of the study was find out the Effect of land Plyometric and Sand Plyometric Training on Selected Physical and Physiological Variables among Hockey Players. Sixty men Hockey players studying from Alagappa University College of Physical Education, Karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, were selected randomly as subjects. Their age ranged from 18 to 24. Twenty subjects were distributed into three equally groups. Group – I control group, Group – II land plyometric training, group– III sand plyometric training. The experimental groups with varied load and velocity underwent their respective training programme for three day in a week for eight weeks. The data were analyzed statistically through anacova to find out the significant difference, the scheffe’s was applied as post hoc test to find out the paired mean difference. There was a significant improvement on control group, land plyometric training group and sand plyometric training group on selected physical variables namely Speed, Agility and physiological variable of Cardio respiratory endurance. The significance difference between land plyometric and sand plyometric training on agility. There was no significance difference on speed and Cardio respiratory endurance of between experimental groups.
