Aim: The aim of the research was to examine the relationships between trunk isometric endurance and explosive power performances.
Material and Method: Twenty-nine male students (age: 22.48±1.18 years) participated in the study. The endurance tests were determined as prone plank and Biering-Sorensen tests evaluating the anterior and posterior parts of the trunk. The explosive power performances were evaluated using 20 m sprint, T-Line agility and counter movement jump test. The relationships between trunk endurance tests and performance tests were analyzed using the Pearson correlation coefficient.
Results: The prone plank test score provided a moderate negatively correlation with the 20 m sprint and T-Line agility (r= -0.636; r= -0.578, respectively) and low positively correlation with the CMJ test (r= 0.458). Sorensen test score was a moderate negatively correlated with the 20 m sprint and T-Line agility (r= -0.564; r= -0.693, respectively) and low correlated with CMJ test (r= 0.376).
Conclusion: There is a moderate and low level significant correlation between trunk endurance scores and athletic performance tests. It can be said that especially explosive power scores may be affected by the endurance of the body; however it can be said that more research should be planned in order to have a detailed understanding.
