INTRODUCTION: The deep muscles of the stomach and low back are the core muscles of your body. They support and protect the low back and also help the leg and arm muscles work well. The core muscles are the superficial and the deep spinal extensors muscles, abdominal muscles, pelvic floor muscles and shoulder girdle and hip girdle muscles. Core muscle strength is usually operationally defined by a measurement of the strength of core muscles, either in terms of how much weight/ resistance a muscle can lift how many repetitions a muscle can perform, or how long a muscle can hold a neutral stable position. Core strength should be distinguished from core stability. In the Physical Therapy literatures the historically older term is “core stability”. In the latter part of 1980’s a concept of neutral spine developed among physical therapists and physicians who were treating individuals with back pain. OBJECTIVES: To determine the effect of core muscle strengthening on power ,speed and agility of collegiate triple jumpers. DESIGN: Pre-test Post-test Experimental Design. PARTICIPATION: 15 subjects aged between 18 to 22 years who fulfilled inclusion and exclusion criteria were selected by purposive sampling methods and randomly assigned. RESULTS: The calculated paired ‘t’ value for power is (23.09), speed ‘t’ value (32.17) and agility ‘t’ value (44.08). Table ‘t’ value is 2.97 at 0.005 level of significance. Hence the calculated ‘t’ value is greater than the Table ‘t’ value there is significant difference in power, speed agility following the core strengthening exercise in collegiate triple jumpers. Since we accept alternative hypothesis and reject null hypothesis. CONCLUSION: It is concluded that there is improvement of core muscle strength in the athletics. It is concluded that there is improvement in speed, agility and power treated with core muscle strength.
