Aim. The study investigated effects of load for depth jump training based on vertical and depth jump performance of male athletes.
Material and Method. Purposively selected forty (N=40) volunteer randomly assigned to depth jump training (n=20) and control group (n=20). Experimental group trained twice weekly for 10-weeks, performing 6-sets of 10-repetitions per session. Dropping height of 20cms from which depth jump performance was maximum and higher than vertical jump performance was the initial training intensity. It was progressed up to 40cms height from which performance was remained higher than vertical jump performance. Vertical jump performance of Experimental and Control group was measured before and after 10 weeks.
Results. Analysis of Covariance was applied to compare scores. The alpha level was set at 0.05. Results showed significant (F1, 37=73.73; p<0.0001) improvement in experimental group as compared to control group.
Conclusion. It is concluded that the procedure adopted for individualization of depth jump training load induces significant adaptations.
