Abstract
The purpose of the present study was to find the effect of plyometric training, strength training and combination of plyometric, strength and mobility training on leg strength and explosive strength. For this purpose, sixty male kho-kho players from various colleges around Namakkal District, Tamilnadu, in the age group of 17 – 25 years were selected. They were divided into four equal groups (n = 15), each group consisted of fifteen subjects, in which group – I underwent plyometric training, group – II underwent strength training, group – III underwent combination of plyometric, strength and mobility training and group – IV acted as control group who did not participate in any special training. The training period for this study was three days in a week for twelve weeks. Prior to and after the training period the subjects were tested for leg strength and explosive strength. Leg strength was assessed by using leg lift with dynamometer and explosive strength was assessed by administering standing broad jump. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to find out the significant difference if any, among the experimental groups and control group on selected criterion variables separately. Since there were four groups involved in this study the Scheffẻ S test was used as pos-hoc test. It was concluded from the result of the study that the plyometric training group, strength training group and combination of plyometric training, strength training and mobility training group has positively altered the criterion variables, such as, leg strength and explosive strength. The result of the study also shown that there was an insignificant difference occurred between the experimental groups, such as, plyometric training group, strength training group and combination of plyometric, strength and mobility training group only on leg strength but in explosive strength, the plyometric training group has better improvement than other experimental groups. The combined training group has also improved explosive strength than the strength training group and control group.
