Abstract: The purpose of the study was to investigate the effects of PLYOMETRIC and CIRCUIT training of male handball players. To achieve the purpose of this study 30 handball players (boys) were selected as subjects with their ages ranging from 16 to 22 years. All the selected subjects were selected randomly and divided into two groups namely Group I Plyometric training group and, Group II Circuit training group. Each group consisted of 15 handball players. The following variables such as physical, were selected for this study and Physical variables are Speed, Strength, Endurance, Flexibility, Agility, Power. Before finalizing the training programme a pilot study was conducted to ensure that the intensity and duration of the programme were within the limits of the subjects’ capacity to produce their desired effect. For this purpose, ten subjects were put into separate training to know the difficulties in the administration of varied trainings. This is the crucial portion of the thesis in arriving at the conclusion by examining the hypothesis. The procedure of testing the hypothesis accordance with the results obtained in relation to the level of confidence which was fixed at 0.05 level was considered necessary for this study. And if they obtained ‘t’ test is lower than the table value of ‘t ’test at 0.05 level, then the hypothesis is rejected to the effect that the difference existing between the means of the groups under study.
