Abstract

The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of high intensity plyometric training with and without mental training among long jumpers. To facilitate the study, 60 male students from the different college level of Andhra PradeshThe study was formulated as a true random group design consisting of a pre-test and post-test. The subjects (N=60) were randomly assigned to three equal groups of twenty male students. The groups were designed as experimental group I high intensity plyometric training with mental training group (HPMG), experimental group II high intensity plyometric training without mental training group (HPTG) and control group (CG) respectively. Each group consists of 20 college level long jumpers. Pre-test was conducted for all the 60 subjects on selected physiological variables such as, maximal oxygen uptake and anaerobic power. The experimental groups (high intensity plyometric training with mental training and without mental training) participated in respective training for a period of twelve weeks. The control group did not participated in any of the training programme. The post-test was conducted on the above said dependent variables after the experimental period for all the three groups. The different between initial and final mean scores of the groups was the effect of respective experimental treatment on the subjects. The differences in the mean scores were subjected to statistical treatment using ANCOVA. In all cases 0.05 level was fixed test the hypothesis of the study.
