Performance in games and sports depends upon factors of physical fitness such as speed, strength, flexibility and endurance. Fitness factors are more important to predict the performance of any athlete. The game of volleyball comprises skills such as setting, serving and spiking. The technique of spiking involves utilizing a combination of speed and strength to hit the ball. The main purpose of this study is to examine the influence of selected physical fitness components at different temperatures for spiking. Ten collegiate level male Volleyball players of VITAM College of engineering, Visakhapatnam, participated in this study as subjects and they have undergone in speed and explosive strength training for seven days. The subjects were selected in the age group of 18-21. The collected data was analyzed by using t-test. The findings of this study revealed that there is a significant difference in speed and explosive strength after training.
