The purpose of this study was to find out the effects of plyometric with functional training on selected physical fitness physiological and skill performance variables of intercollegiate male football players. To achieve the purpose of the study, forty intercollegiate men football players from AVVM Sri Pushpam College, Poondi, Tanjore, Tamilnadu and Adaikala Madha Arts and Science College Tanjore, Tamilnadu were selected as subjects (20 from each college). They were divided into two equal groups in which each group consisted of twenty subjects (n=20). Group-I was the experimental group and Group-II served as control group (CG). The experimental group underwent plyometric training along with their Functional Training for 12 weeks and control group was not engaged in any training other than their routine football training. The following are the criterion variables (a). Physical fitness variables namely speed, leg explosive power and agility, (b). Physiological variables namely vital capacity, resting pulse rate and breath holding time (c). Skill variables namely dribbling, shooting and passing. They were tested using standard test methods and instruments before and after training. In order to analyze the training effects of each group on the selected physical fitness, physiological and skill variables, “t” ratio was used. The findings of the study showed that there was a significant reduction in the resting pulse rate and there were significant improvements in the variables namely speed, agility, leg explosive power, vital capacity, breath holding time, dribbling, shooting and passing between pretest and post-test of the experimental group. There was no significant difference in all of the selected variables between pretest and post-test of the control group.Pages: 22-25 | 841 Views 46 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
