The primary aim of this research was to determine the influence of programmed conditioning training on explosive leg strength of volleyball players during competitive season. Investigation included thirteen senior volleyball players, members of Croatian national league. Before and after the end of conditioning trainings examinees were tested on Kistler's platform on five tests: squat jump, counter movement jump, one leg high jump with left and right leg and repeat squat jump.

The special training included weight lifting and different jumps-variants of jumps from ankle, variants of bench jumps, and variants of one leg bench jumps. Results were analyzed by ANOVA and discriminative analysis. Results of variance analysis showed statistically significant changes in explosive strength tests before and after training period (F=8.71; p=.00). On the other hand, ANOVA showed statistically significant results only on squat jump (F=6.85; p=.02) and counter movement jump (F=9.86; p=.01). Our results point to improved explosive strength after applied specific training program.
