The aim of the study was to find out the effects of strength training and plyometric training on elastic power. To achieve this purpose of the study, forty five female students studying in the Department of Physical Education, C.C.S. University, Meerut, Uttar Pradesh were selected as subjects at random. Their age ranged between 18 to 24 years. The selected subjects were divided into three equal groups of fifteen each namely strength training group, plyometric group and control group. The Experimental Group I underwent Strength Training, Group II underwent Plyometric Training for three days per week for twelve weeks whereas the Control Group (Group III) maintained their daily routine activities and no special training was given to them. The following variable namely elastic power was selected as criterion variable. The subjects of the three groups were tested on elastic power using bunny hops at prior and immediately after the training period. The collected data were analyzed statistically through analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) to fund out the significant difference, if any among the groups. Whenever the obtained “F” ratio was found to be significant, the Scheffe’s test was applied as post hoc test to find out the paired mean difference, if any. The 0.5 level of confidence was fixed to test the level of significance which was considered as an appropriate. The results of the study showed that there was a significant difference exist among strength training group, plyometric training group and control group on elastic power. And also strength training group and plyometric training group showed significant improvement on elastic power when compared to control group.Pages: 189-192 | 36 Views 0 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
