This study was designed to analyze the effect of progressive plyometric training and progressive plyometric training followed by reversibility on anaerobic power. To achieve the purpose of this study, 45 men students from bachelor’s degree course in the department of physical education and sports sciences, Acharya Nagarjuna University Ongole Campus, Ongole, Andhra Pradesh, India were selected as subject. The subject were assigned at random into three groups of fifteen each (n=15). Group I underwent progressive plyometric training, Group II underwent progressive plyometric training followed by reversibility and Group III acted as control. Control group was restricted to participate in any specific training. The anaerobic power was selected as dependent variable. The pre and post test random group design was used as experimental design. The collected data from the three groups prior to and immediately after the training programme on selected criterion variables was statistically examined for significant difference, if any, by applying analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). Since three groups were involved whenever the ‘F’ ratio was found to be significant for adjusted means, Scheffe’s test was followed as a post hoc test to determine which of the paired means difference was significant. The results of the reveals that due to the influence of progressive plyometric training (14.19%) and progressive plyometric training followed by reversibility (15.79%) the anaerobic power was significantly improved. It is also concluded that progressive plyometric training followed by reversibility group is significantly better than progressive plyometric training group in improving anaerobic power.
