The purpose of this study was to effect of plyometric training on selected physical variables among men football players. To achieve the purpose of the study taken (N=30) men football players from Vadakudi football club and Veylangudi football club Karaikudi. The selection of Variables is Cardio- Respiratory Endurance and Explosive Power. The subject's age ranged from 19 to 24 years. The selected subject was divided into two equal groups each group fifteen (N=15) subject, Group –I Plyometric Training Group and Group –II Control Group. The Plyometric Training Group was treated with their respective training for one and a half hours per day weekly three days for eight weeks. Statistical Technique was used paired sample‘t’ test cell mean differences. The level of significance was fixed at a 0.05 level of confidence for all the cases.
