Objective: To find out the effects of Plyometric– weight training and Plyometric training on anaerobic power and muscle strength in male volley ball players.
Study design: Study design: Experimental study, Study type: Comparative study, Sampling method: Simple random sampling, Sample size: 50 subjects (elite volley ball players)
Study settings: YMCA, Study duration:6weeks.
Intervention: Group A: 25 Volley Ball Players will receive Plyometric and weight training group (who received both Plyometric and weight training). Group B: 25 Volley Ball Players will receive Plyometric training group (who received only Plyometric training)
Outcome measures: 1) Vertical jump height, 2) 50 yard dash, 3) 1RM squat.
Results: Statistical analysis was done by using Paired‘t’ and independent ‘t’ test showed significant improvement in improving anaerobic power and muscle strength
Conclusion: It is concluded that there is statistically significant improvement in combined Plyomotric and weight training protocol can successfully be incorporated in a fitness training and conditioning program to improve anaerobic power and muscle strength in volley ball players.
Key words: Lower limb Plyometrics, Weight Training, Male Volley Ball Players, Vertical Jump height, 50 Yard dash, 1 RM Squat.
