Author(s): Vyas Shrinath Rakesh and Shah Nipa

Abstract: Basketball is a multifaceted team sport which requires agility. Core stability in sporting environment is defined as ability to maintain the position of trunk over the pelvis to efficiently produce the force as per the nature of the athletic activity. Improved Core muscle endurance may aid in a successful athletic performance.
Aim: The aim is to find out the effects of Swiss ball training on core muscle endurance and agility in basketball players.
Methodology: 20 Basketball players were included in the study. 4 weeks core muscle training on Swiss ball was given. Pre and Post Data of McGill core endurance test and Illinois Agility Test were recorded.
Statistical analysis: Statistical Analysis is done by appropriate analytical software. As the data was normally distributed, paired ‘t’ test was used for within group analysis for each outcome measure respectively.
Results: Significant changes were observed in the pre and post values of Agility and Core muscle endurance (p < 0.05).
Conclusion: It can be concluded that dynamic core training with Swiss ball improves agility and core muscle endurance.
Clinical significance: Dynamic core training should be incorporated in regular training to improve the core muscle endurance, agility and athletic performance.
