Abstract :
Introduction & Objective: Different exercise methods can have different effects on physical performance of athletes. The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of plyometrics and theraband training on the physical performance of volleyball players. Methods: The statistical population of this study was young volleyball players of Shahid Bagheri Sports Complex in Tehran, with a sample of 30 people. They were selected through purposive sampling. They were randomly divided into two groups: plyometric training (n = 15) and theraband training (n = 15). Exercises were performed 3 sessions per week for 8 weeks. Physical performance including vertical jump, spike jump, agility, displacement velocity (9 and 18 m), and volleyball repetitive effort test performance were measured using specific tests before and 48 hours after the last training session. Data were analyzed using Shapiro Wilk test, independent t-test, and t-test at significant level (P 0.05). Findings: The results showed that both training methods can increase vertical jump, spike jump, agility, speed (9 and 18 m) and volleyball repetitive effort test (ideal time, real time, ideal jump and real jump) in Volleyball players (P 0.05). There was no significant difference between the two groups in any of the indices (P 0.05). Conclusion: It can be concluded that volleyball players can use both Plyometric and Thera band exercise programs to improve their physical performance.
