Background: The ability to jump plays an effective and important role in volleyball, Because jump skills are greatly complicated that it is nearly the outcome of vertical force and horizontal speed besides harmony and synchronization of the work of arms and feet. There is also total harmony related to the skill and plan achievement during attack and block. The purpose of this study was to examine the Effect of Plyometric VS. Pilates Exercises on the Muscular Ability and Components of Jumping in Volleyball Players. Study Design: Experimental design. Methods: 30 subjects were selected randomly from the population using simple random sampling procedure and were divided into two equal groups. Group A was given plyomeric training And Group B was given Pilate training. Outcome measures were taken before and after the Program Schedule of 3 Sessions alternately in 1 week for 6 weeks. Outcome measures: Vertical Jump height, Block jump, and the attack jump, Agility T test, Results: In Group-A (plyometric ) and Group-B (Pilate), all data was expressed as mean ± , SD and was statistically analyzed using paired „t? test and independent „t? test to determine the statistical difference among the parameters at 0.5% level of significance. Statistical data of agility t test, vertical jump height, the Block jump, and the attack jump in volley ball players showed that, there was no significantly difference between groups. And both were effective with p<0.05; i.e 95% of significance. Conclusion: In this study, we concluded that both groups (A & B) were effective in agility t test, improving vertical jump height, the Block jump, and the attack jump in volley ball players. But we recommend use of plyomertic training in volleyball players.
