The study was undertaken to assess the effect of yogic program on explosive leg strength of sportspersons, for the purpose 150 male sports persons with minimum national level participation were selected from Haryana state. The samples were selected from Maharishi Dayanand University, Rohtak, with age of the subjects ranged between 18 to 25 years. The mean age of the subjects was 21.78±1.12. The subjects were divided into three groups’ i.e. Experimental group 1, Experimental Group 2 and Control Group. Pre test of all the groups were taken on the selected variable and the experimental group 1 and 2 were given a yogic training program for 10 weeks and the control group continued with the daily routine activity. The collected pre and post data was analyzed by computing Descriptive analysis and ANCOVA. The results shows that A significant difference is found in the post test values of Explosive Power for Experimental Group I and Control Group (-0.140*), a significant difference has been found between the Experimental group II and Control group (-0.059*) and finally a significant difference has been found in the post test values of Experimental Group II and Experimental group I (-0.082*). The results have proven that yogic practices have a significant effect on the physical factors among sports persons. Yogic practices are a better medium for the improvement of various parameters responsible for attainment of peak performance in sports.
