Abstract
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of isolated and combined strength, plyometric and mobility training on leg strength and anxiety. Seventy five male students studying in various arts and science colleges in and around Villupuram District, Tamilnadu were divided into five equal groups (n = 15), in which group - I underwent strength training, group - II underwent plyometric training, group - III underwent mobility training and group – IV underwent combined training for 3 days per week for 12 weeks, and group V acted as control which did not participate any special training. The subjects were tested on selected criterion variables such as leg strength and anxiety at prior to and immediately after the training. For testing the leg strength, the dynamometer was used, and for anxiety the Taylor Manifest Anxiety Scale was used. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used as statistical tool and since five groups were involved in the present study, the Scheffé S test used as post-hoc test. The selected criterion variables such as leg strength was improved and anxiety was decreased significantly for all the training groups when compared with the control group and the leg strength was improved significantly for strength training group and plyometric training group.
