The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of three types of resistance training program on girls' physical fitness. 30 girls were divided into 3 groups: plyometric training with vascular occlusion (PLO), plyometric training without vascular occlusion (PL) and power-resistance training (PR). Training programs were conducted for six weeks. Physical fitness tests were conducted before and after the training programs. The data were analyzed by one-way analysis of variance. The results indicated a significant increase in speed, explosive power and agility in all three groups. Increased speed in PLO (16.8%) had a significant difference compared with the PL (9.6%) and PR (7.3%). Explosive power in plyometric training groups (18.7 % in PL group and 18% in PLO group) had a significant difference compared with PR (4.6%). There was a significant difference in agility in PLO and PL groups (6.7% in PLO and 6.5% in PL group) compared to PR (3%). But, there were no significant differences among the three training groups in balance and anaerobic power. The plyometric training (either PLO or PL) had greater effects on speed, explosive power and agility in female athletes compared with PR training.
