Effects of strength training and plyometric training on selected physical fitness variables among inter-collegiate volleyball players


Author(s): N Alavuthen Basha and Dr. PK Kavithashri

Abstract: Strength training is important for athletes across all sports but for football players, it’s a prerequisite for safe competition. The physicality of football means that athletes, especially young athletes, must be structurally strong and conditioned to compete safely. If one of your players shows up under-prepared, his safety and your team’s chance of success is at risk. The good news is that most football programs have adopted some system of strength and conditioning to prepare their players. But if you’re not currently training your players on a periodized strength training program, designed by a certified strength coach for the specific demands of football, you might not be doing enough to reduce your athletes’ risk of injury.
The purpose of the present study, 90 players were selected as samples from Bharathiar University affiliated colleges, Coimbatore District in the year of 2019 - 2020. Finally sixty men volleyball players were randomly selected as subjects for the present study. They were divided into three groups. Each group consists of 20 subjects. Group -I Strength Training Group (STG), Group - II Plyometric Training Group (PTG) and Group - III control group (CG). The ages of subjects were ranged from 18-25. In the present study are significant source to maintain the skill performance and with its related physical fitness variables is leg explosive power and shoulder muscular strength. The present study pays attention mainly on testing the means of three groups (two experimental and one control) and secondarily deals with the increase of means in each group from baseline to post treatment for various measures. The statistical tools used are the analysis of co-variance was applied. To determine whether the training programmes produced significantly different improvements in selected variables after 12 weeks of training the analysis of co-variance was used. The result of this study indicates that there is insignificant difference in leg explosive power and shoulder muscular strength among players of volleyball game. The hypothesis of this study stated that there would be significant difference in leg explosive power and shoulder muscular strength among players of volleyball game.
