This study was designed to examine the effect of Selected Plyometric and Akhada exercises on body composition. Sixty male college students in the age group of 19-24 years studying in Govt.PG College, Etah, were randomly selected as subjects for the study. All the subjects were divided randomly into two experimental groups (Group A & Group B) and a control group and each group have equal number of subjects. The Group A was trained with Plyometric exercises and Group B was trained with the Akhada exercises whereas control group did not participate in any training program for 8 weeks. Data collected was analyzed at 0.05 level of significance using the analysis of co-variance and revealed significant change in body composition. As calculated F-value for lean body mass was 15.43, fat percentage was 36.62 and total body mass was 23.22. Post hoc mean comparison showed plyometric group had significant difference with control group in case of lean body mass and total body mass whereas akhada group had significant difference with control group in case of lean body mass and fat percentage.
