Plyometric training is a very popular form of physical conditioning of healthy individuals that has been extensively studied over the last decades. In this article, we critically review the available literature related to Plyometric training and its effects on physical fitness in team sport athletes. The purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of plyometric training on selected physical fitness and skill variables of intercollegiate level male football players. Thirty out of players were randomly selected from Sri Ramakrishna Mission Vidyalaya College of Arts and Science, Coimbatore the selected players were divided into two groups consisting of 15 players. No attempt was made equate the groups. The age of the subjects ranged between 18 to 25 years. The influence of the plyometric exercise was assessed on physical variables. The training load was increased from the maximum working capacity of the subject doing pilot study. The duration of the training period was restricted to six weeks and the number of sessions per week was confined to three. The data obtained from all the groups before and after the experimental period were statistically analyzed by dependent‘t’ test to find out the significant improvement if any, 0.05 level of confidence was fixed to the level of significance between pre and post test means of all groups
