The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of 8 weeks of strength and plyometric training on anaerobic power, explosive power and strength quadriceps femoris muscle in Soccer Players. 20 male soccer players who aged 20-30 voluntarily participated in the study. They were assigned in strength (n=10) and plyometric (n=10) groups. Both groups performed selected soccer-specified strength and plyometric for 8 weeks. Data was analyzed using paired t-test, independent t-test statistical methods. The results showed that strength Quadriceps femoris muscle statistically significant increase in post-test compared to pre-test in strength training group (p=0.015) and explosive power in statistically significant increase in post-test compared to pre-test in plyometric training group (p=0.021). Between-groups comparison showed better records in explosive power for plyometric compared with strength training group after eight weeks (p=0.049). The results showed that both strength and plyometric training improves physical fitness in soccer players. Therefore, recommended that both types of training program to prepare their benefit.
