A systematic review and meta-analysis study on a training method that will help young basketball players jump higher on the court presents remarkable results. This training method, based on the combination of traditional strength training and plyometric training (CST), allows for superior results compared to traditional strength training.


The research was conducted on young basketball players aged 9 to 18. The effects of the athletes' CST and traditional training programs were compared with meta-analysis, and which method was more effective was tested. The results show that groups applying CST significantly outperformed in vertical jump tests.


The secret of CST consists of a series of exercises that enable athletes to use their muscles more effectively and strengthen their neural responses. As a result, the jumping abilities of young basketball players are significantly increased, directly impacting their performance on the court.


These findings provide important insights for coaches and sports scientists to make young athletes' training programs more effective. The research also suggests that CST can be applied with similar success in sports other than basketball, demonstrating that this method has a wide range of applications. This research is seen as an important step in improving the physical capacities of young athletes and making them more successful.
