ABSTRACT

Objectives: The aim of this study is to compare a 10-week period, in which strength training (five weeks) was followed by plyometric training (five weeks) or the other way around among handball players. Hypothesis: Performing strength training first and then plyometric training will improve lower body strength and performance more than the reverse training sequence. Methods: Thirty-six young handball players voluntarily participated in this research. Pre and post test data (running, changing direction, jumping, strength, throwing, and endurance) were compared between groups using one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA). The level of statistical significance was set at p < 0.05. SPSS was used for the statistical analysis. Results: The results imply that a precise training regime for plyometric and strength training in young handball players is not required. Thus, strength and conditioning training plans created for the youth handball group can be effective regardless of the training regimen. Furthermore, when boosting back squat performance is the main objective, the outcomes of the contemporary research imply that completing plyometric training before a strength-centered training phase may be useful. Conclusion: It is concluded that professionals arrange training schedules to enhance athlete compliance and concentrate on the most important results.
