Speed Plyometrics Triplejump Technique


The present study is an experimental research which was concluded to find out the impact of speed training and plyometric exercise on Triple Jump performance among under 17 age boys athlete of International Indian School, Dammam, Saudi Arabia. To achieve this purpose training method was designed in which the subjects were divided from the group of two hundred and twenty -five triple jumpers which were chosen randomly for this study and they were divided into three equal groups of seventy-five each. The three experimental groups were Group A - Speed, Group B - Plyometric exercise and Group C – Speed Training. In which A & B were experimental group and C being control group. This research was based on pre-test, Treatment and post - test equivalent group design. Before the training program a pre- test for all the three groups was held. A Six-week training program was given to experimental group of Speed Training and Plyometric Exercise groups. The control group did not get the training but they had participated in other physical activities. After the Six-week training program the post - test was held for all the three groups. To analyze data, descriptive statistics was used. Further to check the effectiveness of each training program ANCOVA was applied with the pre-data as a covariate. Least significant difference was applied for post hoc analysis of variables where F-ratio was significant. The descriptive statistics for the gross scores of Spikers, Set-upper and Libero, which pertain to Mean, Standard Deviation, Minimum, Maximum, Range, Kurtosis, Skewness and Standard Error.
