Abstract :

The purpose of the study was to determine the effect of plyometric training and complex training on drop off time among runners. For this purpose, forty five (N=45) boys who were participated 400meters events in the inter school competition in Kollam District, Kerala during the year 2016–2017 were selected randomly as subjects. The age of the subjects were ranged from 14 to 16 years. The subjects were divided at random into three groups of fifteen each (n=15).  Group–I underwent Plyometric Training, Group–II underwent Complex Training, and Group–III acted as Control. The Training Program period was limited to five days per week for twelve weeks. The dependent variables selected for this study was Drop off Time and it was measured through 100 Meters and 400 Meters Running Test. All the subjects were tested prior to and immediately after the experimental period on the selected dependent variables. The data obtained from the experimental groups before and after the experimental period were statistically analyzed with Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). Whenever the ‘F’ ratio for adjusted post test means was found to be significant, the Scheffe’s Post hoc test was applied to determine the paired mean differences. The level of confidence was fixed at 0.05 level for all the cases. The experimental groups, namely plyometric training group and complex training group have shown significant decrease in selected athletic performance components namely drop off time.
