Background: It is well known that exercise training has positive effects low intensity and medium intensity training is a famous form of therapeutic and purposeful exercise. Despite their popularity, few empirical researches have investigated the advantages of low intensity and medium intensity training in relation to sports activities performance. Which make it challenging to compare protocols with different intensities and volumes. In addition, previous studies have not reported adherence to their protocols, which could have an important clinical impact on designing exercise protocol for sedentary healthy individuals. Method: Therefore the purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of medium intensity training on physiological variables such as heart rate and mean arterial blood pressure of healthy individuals. In this study sixty (60) subjects, of healthy individuals were randomly selected in low intensity plyometric (Group I), medium intensity plyometric (Group II), and control (Group III). Each group consisted of twenty people (n=20), (n=60; age 18 ± 3.04; height 1.70 ± 6.71 cm; weight=59 ± 7.38 kg). Timeline: The two experimental groups were given twelve weeks of training. Training on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. All three groups had before and after testing on the criterion variables. Every day, the training was only done in the evening session, which lasted 90 minutes. Subjects in the experimental groups were given ten minutes of warm-up and ten minutes of cool-down exercises before and after each training session from the srmist playground in and around the kattankulathur campus in chennai. Physiological variables completed of the both groups at zero time and after twelve weeks of low intensity and medium intensity training in experimental group and in non-medium intensity control group. Results: In present study, Heart Rate ‘F’ (6.63*) were changed significantly. There is no significant difference on mean arterial blood pressure. Conclusion: The results show after 12 weeks of varying intensity plyometric exercise, healthy individuals' heart rate changed significantly. The post hoc analysis showed no significant differences between the control and low intensity plyometric training groups. The results showed that the medium intensity plyometric exercise group changed better heart rate than the control group. Comparing training groups no significant changes found. The findings demonstrated that there were no statistically significant changes in mean arterial blood pressure.
