Abstract: The purpose of the study was to examine the impact of plyometric training on chosen physical fitness variables of adolescent boys. The age varies between 11 to 15 years. Subjects were divided randomly into two teams, training cluster and control cluster. Training cluster performed a plyometric program for eight weeks, weekly five days. Pre- and post-tests measurements were taken for sprint, muscular strength and endurance, leg explosive power and pushups for two teams. Results showed that coaching teams improved in considerably (p<0.05) in five dependent variables. Plyometric exercises seem to be viable and effective way to improve physical fitness capability of the adolescent boys.
