Effects of maximal power training with and without plyometrics training on vertical jump height and maximum power of men team handball players


Author(s): E Balaji and Dr. K Murugavel

Abstract: The study was designed to investigate the “Effects of maximal power training with and without plyometrics training on vertical jump height and maximum power of men team handball players”. To achieve this purpose sixty college level men team handball players were randomly selected from Coimbatore district as subjects. Their age ranged between 18 and 25 years. The selected subjects were divided into three equal groups consisting of twenty each. No attempt was made to equate the groups. Experimental group I (n = 20) underwent maximal power training with plyometrics training (MPTWP), experimental group II (n = 20) underwent maximal power training without plyometrics training (MPTWOP) for a period of 12 weeks and group III (n = 20) acted as control group (CG), the subjects in control group were not engaged in any training programme other than their regular work. The criterion variables were chosen namely vertical jump height and maximum power. The dependent variables were assessed before and after the 12 weeks of maximal power training with and without plyometrics. The collected data on vertical jump height and maximum power were analyzed with application of ‘t’ test to find out the individual effect from base line to post-test if any. Further Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was used to determine the significant difference between the treatment means. Whenever the ‘F’ ratios were found to be significant, scheffe’s post hoc test was applied to test the significant difference between the paired adjusted means. 0.05 level of confidence was fixed to test the level of significance
