Abstract
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of plyometric training programme on back strength and explosive power. To achieve this purpose, 20 male students were randomly selected as subjects from the Department of Physical Education and Sports Sciences, Annamalai University studying in various classes. The age of the subjects were ranged from 18 to 25 years. The subjects were further classified at random into two equal groups of 10 subjects each in which group – I underwent plyometric training programme for three days per week for eight weeks and group – II acted as control who were not undergo any special training programme. The selected criterion variables such as back strength and explosive power in terms of vertical distances were assessed by administering back lift with dynamometer and Sergeant Jump respectively, before and after the training period. The collected data were statistically analysed by using Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA). From the results of the study it was found that there was a significant improvement on back strength and explosive power for plyometric training group when compared with the control group.
