The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of plyometric training and maximal power training on leg strength. To achieve this purpose of the study, forty-fivemale student studying in the department of physical education and sports sciences, Annamalai University, Annamalai nagar, were selected as subjects at random. The age group is between 18 -22 years. The subjects were divided into three equal groups offifteen each Group I underwent plyometric training programme and group II underwent maximal power training programme for three days per week for twelve weeks and Group III acted as control, which did not participate in any special training programme apart from regular physical activities as per the curriculum. Anaerobic Power was the variable it was measured by Margaria-Kalamen test, all the subjects were tested on anaerobic power1prior to and immediately after the training programme. The analysis of covariance was used to analyze the significant difference, if any, among the groups. 0.05 level of confidence was fixed as the level of significance to test the "F” ratio obtained by the analysis of covariance, which was considered as appropriate. The results of the study revealed that there was significant difference among, plyometric training group, maximal power training group and control group on Anaerobic power It was found that there was a significant improvement on anaerobic power due to plyometric training and maximal power training.
