Effect of plyometric training with dynamic stretching programme on Explosive power and Agility of female volleyball players


Dr. S. Akilandeswari

The purpose of the study was to compare, analyze the individual and combined effect of plyometric training program and dynamic stretching on Explosive power and Agility. The subjects included 60, healthy female collegiate volleyball players between the ages of 1825. All the subjects were tested in using Explosive power test and Agility test respectively prior to starting the dynamic stretching and plyometric training program. The subjects then completed a 8 week training program and were re tested. The subjects in each of the training groups trained for 2 days per week, whereas control group did not participate in any training activity. The data were analyzed by an anova [ANOVA] and analysis of co-variance [ANOCOVA]. The results showed that all the training treatments elicited significant (P<0.05) improvement in all of the tested variables. The combined plyometric training with Dynamic stretching group showed significantly greater improvement in Explosive power and Agility, whereas plyometric training group and dynamic stretching group showed lesser improvement in Explosive power and Agility. This study provides support for the use of plyometric drills and dynamic stretching exercises to improve the Explosive power and Agility.
