ABSTRACT

Background: Speed is an important component of football game as well as the training process. The setting of today's football requires agile players, that would be unpredictable and subtle for the opponent. Plyometric helps to fill up the performance gap by improving speed, power, agility and skill of an individual. The aim of the study is to find out the effects of Plyometrics (knee-to-chest tuck jump) on speed in football players. Objectives: To find out the effect of regular exercise in control group on speed in football players and to find out the effect of Plyometrics (knee-to-chest tuck jump) on speed in football players. Methods: Experimental study design carried out on 50 footballers who were randomly divided into 2 groups: experimental (25) and control (25). Outcome measures were 50 Meter Run Test for assessing speed. Control group continued their regular training sessions and experimental group received intervention of "Knee to Chest Tuck Jumps" in addition. Result: The control group performed 50m Run Test with mean pre 6.66 (±0.28) and post 6.59(±0.28), MD 0.07, t Value 1.021 and p value 0.317. The experimental group performed 50m Run Test with mean Pre 7.266 (±0.172) and Post 7.01(±0.146), MD 0.256, t Value 12.53, p value < 0.001 shows significant improvement in the speed of participants. Conclusion: Regular training in addition to plyometrics gives additional improvement in speed.
