The purpose of the study was to find out the influence of bench step aerobics on horizontal and vertical jumping
ability among men jumpers. It was hypothesized that the bench step aerobics group might show significant differences on horizontal and vertical jumping ability among men jumpers. To achieve the purpose of the present study, thirty intercollegiate level jumpers were selected from Tirunelveli district, Tamilnadu were selected as subjects at random and their ages ranged from 18 to 25 years. The study was formulated as a true random group design, consisting of a pre-test and post-test. The subjects (n=30) were randomly assigned to two equal groups as bench step aerobics group (BSAG) and control group (CG) in an equivalent manner. The bench step aerobics group participated for a period of six weeks for alternate three days in a week and the post-tests were taken. To find out the difference between the two groups analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used. The bench step aerobics had positive impact on horizontal jump and vertical jump among jumpers.
