Effect of 6 Weeks Plyometric Training on Speed and Agility of Football Players

Justin Antony

Abstract: The study aimed to examine the impact of a 6-week plyometric training program on the speed and agility of football players. Twenty players from the Zeal football academy, aged 16 to 19, participated in the study. Speed was assessed through a 50-meter dash, while agility was measured using the T-test. The experimental group incorporated plyometric exercises into their regular training sessions, while the control group followed their usual training routine. Pre-training tests were conducted for both groups, and post-training tests were administered to evaluate the effects of plyometric training. The results showed a significant increase in speed among the experimental group compared to the control group, indicating that plyometric exercises positively affected the acceleration of football players. However, neither group showed significant improvements in agility, suggesting that plyometric training may not be effective in developing agility specifically. The study partially supported the hypothesis that plyometric training paired with football practice would improve both speed and agility. The study underscores the potential benefits of plyometric exercises for enhancing athletes' quickness and speed, but further research is needed to explore effective approaches for improving agility in football players.
