Abstract
  • The purpose of this investigation was to determine the effectiveness of a 6-week strength training program consisting of squat and plyometric exercises on vertical power jump performance, static and dynamic muscular strength, and muscular power production in college age adults. Fifteen male and two female college students in an advanced weight training class at the Oregon State University served as subjects for the study. Nine subjects trained only with squat exercises whereas eight subjects trained with combined squat and plyometric exercises. All subjects trained twice a week for six weeks. A pre-test and post-test randomized groups design was utilized in this study. The statistical analysis was conducted using a paired t-test, and a repeated measures analysis of variance (ANOVA). A .05 level of significance was selected for rejection of the null hypothesis (p < .05). The results of the training programs indicated a significant mean increase (p < .05) from the pre-test to post-test for the vertical power jump within the combined squat and plyometric training. Static strength significantly decreased (p < .05) from the pre-test level to the post-test level within the squat training program. Hamstring strength and hamstring power were significantly different (p < .05) within both training programs when pre-test and post-test mean scores were compared. However, no differences existed between the gains achieved by the two training programs. The results of this study will assist physical educators and coaches in designing more effective training programs both at the high school and college level.
