EFFECT OF PLYOMETRIC TRAINING AND RESISTANCE TRAINING ON PHYSICAL AND MENTAL PERFORMANCE IN COLLEGIATE MALE FOOTBALL PLAYERS

Chintvika Patel

Abstract



Background: Marked evidence indicates that regular participation in a resistance training program or a plyometric training program can improve measures of strength and power in adults. Studies also suggest that changes in motor performance skills resulting from the performance of combined resistance training and plyometric training are greater than with either type of training alone. Thus, both resistance training and plyometric training are typically recommended for adults when gains in motor performance are desired.

Aims: To determine the Effect of Plyometric training and Resistance training on Aerobic endurance, Agility, Psychology, Reaction time, speed, Strength and power in collegiate male Football players.

Methodology: Study Design: Pre-test – Post-test Experimental Study, Sampling: Simple Random Sampling, Outcome Measures: Aerobic endurance was measured by Balke VO2Max Test, Agility was measured by Illinois agility run Test, Psychology was measured by Sport Competition Anxiety Test, Reaction Time was measured by Ruler Drop Test, Speed was measured by 300-yard shuttle Test, Elastic Strength was measured by Standing Long Jump Test, Duration of Study: 6 Week, Group Wise Interventions: Group 1: Plyometric Training Group. 30 subjects were given plyometric regime, Group 2: Resistance Training Group. 30 subjects were given resistance regime, Sample Size: 60 collegiate male football players from Anand District were selected and divided into 2 groups.  Each group had 30 subjects.

Statistical Analysis Paired and Unpaired T-test were used to analyze the obtained data.

Conclusion: At the end of this study, we concluded that plyometric training is effective in improving agility, speed and elastic strength whereas resistance training is beneficial in enhancing aerobic endurance, reaction time and psychology.
