Abstract

Plyometric training is one of very prevailing training methods. It has its unique effect compared to other training methods. Having targeted 16 girl basketball players in senior high school, a set of box horse curriculum was designed with polymetric training for the study.

Except for the control group, the other three groups had to receive 12 weeks of box horse training in addition to general basketball course training. The results of the study showed: Based on the plyometric training designed and applied to senior high school girl basketball players, this study shows that either CMJ or CJ has its effect.
