Plyometric exercises are a vital element for Basketball for earning the utmost strength, speed and force during the Basketball match and should be included in any exercise program of Basketball. The purpose of the present study to find out the effect of plyometric exercises for the development of Shoulder strength and speed among Basketball players. The sample for the present study consists of 20 Male Basketball players of RTM Nagpur University out of which 10 are experimental group and 10 are controlled group. Plyometric exercises correspondent as hopping, bounding, depth jumps, tuck jumps, Pushups etc., were given to experimental group on alternate days i.e., three sessions per week and controlled group were given the general training for six weeks. Pre Test and Post Test were conducted in Pull-ups to measure the shoulder strength and 30 m Run to measure the speed among experimental group and controlled group. This study shows that due to the plyometric training there's a breakthrough of experimental group in the shoulder strength and speed and controlled group is downscaled in performance of shoulder strength and speed. Basketball game demands explosive power and great continuity. Explosive power is a combination of speed, muscular continuity and muscular strength, all of which can be developed through plyometric exercises. It is concluded that due to plyometric exercises there will be advancement in shoulder strength and speed among Basketball playersPages: 25-28 | 195 Views 6 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
