A STUDY ON EFFECT OF 12 WEEK PLYOMETRIC TRAINING AND RECOVERY ON VERTICAL JUMP AMONG HIGHER SECONDARY SCHOOL CHILDREN
BETWEEN AGES 16 TO 18 YEAR OLD
Dr. Sosamma John and Dr. Mathew P. John
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of 12 week Plyometric training and Recovery training on leg explosiveness among higher secondary school children. Plyometric exercises are an effective way to develop speed and strength which is especially helpful for sports. Performing plyometric exercises in one to three times a week can increase vertical jump and improve speed and strength. Four to seven week plyometric programmes are effective for improving vertical jump, height, vertical jump power and anaerobic power, when it is followed by a proper recovery period. This study examined the effect of 12 weeks of plyometric training and plyometric training and recovery among Higher secondary school children. It was formulated as parallel group design, consists of two experimental groups and one controlled group. To the randomly selected sixty subjects an initial test on vertical jump power was administered. Based on the data the groups were equated in to three groups and group I represented the control, plyometric exercise training for twelve weeks assigned to group II. Plyometric and recovery training was administered to group III on the criterion measure. The vertical jump performance was analyzed by the application of one way analysis of variance (ANOVA). It is evident from the study that the motor fitness variable – vertical jump has significantly changed in the plyometric and recovery training.
