The Purpose of the study was to find our the Combined Effects of Plyometrics and Resistance Training on selected explosive ability of university volleyball players. For this purpose, forty male volleyball players studying in prist University thanjavur District, were selected as subjects at random and they were decided randomly into two groups of twenty each, namely Combined polymeric and Resistance Training Group and Control Group. The training period was limited to twelve weeks and for three days per week. The dependent variables selected for this study were Vertical Jumping Ability. The data obtained from the Experimental groups be fore and after the experimental period were stratistically analyzed with Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). The level of confidence was fixed at 0.5 levels for all the cases. Vertical Jumping Ability and Horizontal Jumping ability showed significant difference between the groups.
