Bayram, Metin
Educational Research and Reviews, v11 n8 p703-707 Apr 2016
This research evaluated the effects of resistance training with upper body plyometric effects on the performance of male basketball players. Sixteen males in the physical education and sport science faculty of Ataturk University were randomly determined into two groups. The experimental group performed a combined strength and plyometric training twice a week for six weeks. Also, experimental group subjected basketball training (2 h), once a week that was separated from strength with plyometric sessions. The control group only participated in basketball skills training, two hours a week. Pre-test and post-test on upper body strength, grip strength, vertical jump and American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD) battery of tests were collected for basketball players. Results showed a significant main interaction of intervention and test time on passing skill at F (1, 7) = 0.50, p < 0.05, partial ?[superscript 2] = 0.07. In conclusion, a six-weeks strength and upper body plyometric has significantly lower passing score in compare to the control.
