Comparison the Effect of Water Plyometrics and Land Plyometrics On Body Mass Index and Biomotorical Variables of Adolescent Basketball Players

By Ozhan BAVLI


The aim of this study was to compare the effects of water plyometrics and land plyometrics on Body Mass Index (BMI) and biomotorical variables of adolescent basketball players. Ninety-one adolescent basketball players (48 male, 43 female) at the age of 16±1 year were enrolled in the study. Athletes were randomly divided in to three groups; water plyometric group (n:31), land plyometric group (n:30) and control group n:30). Study period was 12 weeks. All groups had standardized basketball training. water and land groups also had plyometrics three times a week. BMI and biomotorical variables including; body mass index, one repetition maximum leg strength, 30 meter sprint, vertical jump, flexibility were measured. SPSS 11,5 version was used for the data analysis. ” One Way ANOVA” was used to compare pretest and post test findings of study groups. Differences between pretest and psottest findings of genders and groups were analyzed by “Two Way ANOVA For Independent Samples”. Significance was set at p<.05. Significant differences were detected on BMI and biomotorical variables between pretest and posttest results in both water and land plyometric exercise groups. But there were no statistically significant differences between groups. After the study period there were also statistically significant differences between control and plyometric exercise groups
