Dr. Mantu Baro, Ainu Sonowal
The purpose of the present study was to determine the effect of selected plyometric exercise on Explosive strength, Speed and Agility. 20 male students of Bachelor of Physical Education of Dibrugarh University aged 19 to 25 years were selected as subjects. For the study the pre-test post-test single group design was adopted. The experimental treatment was given to the subjects through the plyometric exercises i.e. Squat Jump, Split Jump (lounges), Vertical Depth Jump, Jump up, Box Jump March, Lateral Jump (Single leg), Lateral Jump over the cone (Double leg), four days a week for 6 weeks of one and half hour per session from 6 a.m. to 7: 30 a.m. The pre-test and post-test data were collected before and immediately after the completion of the training programme by using Standing Broad Jump, 50 yard dash and Semo Agility test respectively. To analyze the collected data t-test statistical technique was employed and the level of significant was observed at 0.05 level of confidence. On the basis of the statistical technique it was conclude that there was significant improvement of Agility (t0.05 (38) = 3.074 > 2.0244) and insignificant improvement of Explosive strength (t0.05 (38) = 0.778 < 2.0244) and Speed (t0.05 (38) = 0.663 < 2.0244) due to the training of selected plyotmetric exercises.
