ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of plyometric training in two different training frequencies between the competition seasons on vertical jump performance, anaerobic capability. Male basketball players aged 15-17 participated in this study. A total of 18 basketball players were divided into three groups as unbiased and in equal number (n=6); two experimental and one control group. One of these groups applied the drop jump plyometric exercise following the basketball training routine once a week while the other two groups did it three times a week, and, then, the training was completed with a stretching exercise. The study of the control group was completed with a stretching exercise after the routine. The training took eight weeks. Some measurements were taken before and after the eight weeks of the training session. Anaerobic power and capacity was recorded by the Wingate anaerobic test. Statistical comparisons among the three groups in this study were calculated by taking mean values of dependent variables, and Mann-Whitney U test, and Wilcoxon signed rank test was used for significance effects of dependent variables. Significance level was determined as p =5 . At the end of the training, it was observed that the values of the anaerobic power and capacity values of plyometric exercise groups showed statistically significant improvements. A statistically significant increase in the values of anaerobic power and capacity was provided for the experimental group doing the plyometric exercise once a week compared with the control group.
