significant differences between whey versus soy protein supplementation on muscle strength or fat-free mass. Miller et al. ( 2014 ) carried out a meta-analysis specifically investigating the combined effects of WP and RT, and reported a significant increase in lean body mass with WP supplementation. The

strategically to ensure retention of lean body mass and hormonal status, weight loss of as little as 2–3 kg can have a favorable impact on explosive power and speed ( Huovinen et al., 2015 ). Despite the potential benefits of reducing body mass, sprint athletes may present with indicators of low energy

, studies have rarely examined the effects of plyometric conditioning on anthropometric indices, even though changes in lean body mass (ie, muscle mass) and body fat percentage could positively affect volleyball performance ( 23 , 26 , 29 ). Skill-based conditioning is another popular training method in
