Dr. NN Bobby PT and Dr. J Gokula KrishnanAbstract: Introduction:
Speed represents the ability of an individual to perform motor actions in minimum time and with maximum efficiency, so its development and training is essential, since in most of the sport-physical activities, actions related with speed are needed.
Aim: Aim of the study is to find out the effectiveness of Plyometric training on sprint performance in college level athletes.
Method: Pre and Post Experimental study was conducted to find the effectiveness of Plyometric training on sprint performance in college level athletes. By purposive sampling method 10 subject ages between 17-21yrs (College Students -Athelets) and only males were selected. Duration of the study was 2 months
Data collection: By using
Speed: 50 meter sprint run
Acceleration: 10 meter splint run with push-ups.
Training program: Included Plyometric training for 30 min, five sessions per week over a period of 4 weeks. Patients were assessed at the baseline using speed and acceleration, and reassessed after 4 weeks.
Result: Plyometric training shows significant difference in the pre and post test values, before and after application of Plyometric training. The mean score of Speed- pre assessment 8.8 and post assessment 6.6, the mean score of Acceleration pre assessment 5 and post assessment 3.9.
Conclusion: The finding of the study revealed that Plyometric training is effective on sprint performance for collage level athletes. Pages: 22-24 | 168 Views 30 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
