Young male elite-level soccer players, between 13-14 years of age, and members of a first division Tunisian soccer club (Esperance Club Tunis, Tunisia), volunteered to participate in this study and were either enrolled in ABPT (n=13) or BBPT (n = 13) training program.
Participants were randomly allocated to a program that either alternated a series of paired individual balance and plyometric exercises (n = 13, ABPT: Table 2a) or they performed a block of balance exercises prior to a block of plyometric exercises (n = 13, BBPT: Table 2b) within each training session.
The within session exercise sequence of balance and plyometric training on variables of physical fitness were analyzed in separate 2 (Group: ABPT, BBPT) x 3 (Time: pre, mid, post) ANOVAs with repeated measures on "Time".
Weekly session-RPE was 1019.51, and 1009.78 arbitrary units for the ABPT and BBPT respectively (p > 0.05).
Group ABPT additionally achieved significant improvements in 30-m sprint time from pre- to post- (p = 0.013) and from mid- to post-training (p < 0.001).
For group ABPT, significant pre-mid- (p < 0.001), pre-post- (p < 0.001), and mid-post-training changes (p = 0.042) were found for the Y-balance test.
When Table 2 is examined, it is observed that the dimension of extraversion of TIPS is positively and significantly related with both ABPT extraversion dimension (r = 59, p < 01) and FFPI extraversion dimension (r = 58, p < 01).
In this study, it was found that the correlation of TIPS with ABPT ranged between, 52 and, 59.
