Abstract
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of plyometric training, and combination of plyometric and strength training on selected leg strength and back strength. Forty five male kabaddi players aged between 18 and 25 years were selected for the study. They were divided into three equal groups, each group consisting of fifteen subjects in which three experimental groups and one control group, in which the group I (n=15) underwent plyometric training, group II (n = 15) underwent combination of plyometric and strength training for three days (alternative days) per week for twelve weeks and group III, acted as control, which did not participate in any training. The subjects were tested on selected criterion variables such as leg strength and back strength at prior to and immediately after the training period. For testing the leg strength and back strength the dynamometer was used. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to find out the significant difference if any, between the experimental groups and control group on selected criterion variables separately. Since there were three groups involved in the present study, the Scheffé S test was used as post-hoc test. The selected criterion variables such as leg strength and back strength were improved significantly for all the training groups when compared with the control group.
