    In this review, various studies and research on the effects of strength training on basketball athletes were examined. The review showed that individuals who added plyometrics and strength training to their regime increased their performance in vertical jump, box jump, and explosiveness. Electro-myo-stimulation or neuromuscular electrical stimulation, which is primarily used in rehabilitation, is also shown to increase muscle regeneration, which leads to higher performance.
    Strength training helped increase overall muscle strength and endurance among female athletes who had a high tendency to injure their anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), which consequently reduced the likelihood of injury. Studies concluded that strength training reduced the chance of ankle injury and gains in performance. The overall conclusion from the previous studies is that strength training is an almost essential part of the sport, keeping athletes strong, and helping them to maintain their maximum performance level. Strength training was positively related to better performance, and less injuries. As strength training and plyometric training had virtually no adverse effects, teams at all levels with players ranging from young adulthood to older should implement some sort of strength training combined with plyometric work.
