Abstract

SUMMARY

EXPLOSIVENESS IS A DESIRABLE PHYSICAL QUALITY THAT CAN BE EFFECTIVELY TRAINED USING VARIOUS METHODS. ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAYS OF DEVELOPING EXPLOSIVENESS IS WEIGHTLIFTING. THE USE OF THESE EXERCISES IN TRAINING HAS SUPPORT IN BOTH RESEARCH AND PRACTICE. HOWEVER, THESE LIFTS ARE FAR FROM THE ONLY METHODS AVAILABLE TO COACHES. COMBINING TRADITIONAL STRENGTH TRAINING EXERCISES, SUCH AS BACK SQUATS, WITH EXPLOSIVE MOVEMENTS, SUCH AS PLYOMETRICS, CAN OFTEN PROVE TO BE JUST AS EFFECTIVE. LIKE WEIGHTLIFTING, THIS TYPE OF TRAINING ALSO HAS SUPPORT IN RESEARCH AND PRACTICE.
