The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of 6 weeks complex training with different training order on the maximum lower body strength (half-squat, peak torque of knee extension and flexion measured in isokinetic test with angular velocity set at 60°•S^(-1)), power (static jump, counter movement jump & drop jump) and speed (28 meter sprint) among collegiate basketball athletes. Twenty Division-I male basketball players (aged: 19 ± 1.5 yr, height: 181.1 ± 9.18cm, weight: 80.0 ± 12.97kg, VO2max: 57.0 ± 6.27ml•min^(-1)•kg^(-1)) were randomly assigned into WP (weight training followed by plyometric training) and PW (plyometric training followed by weight training) groups. Both groups received two 60-min training sessions per week for 6 weeks. Pre and post test were carried out before and after 6 weeks complex training. Data were analyzed by using one-way ANCOVA with α level set at .05. The results indicated that after 6 weeks complex training, both groups revealed significant improvement in 1RM half-squat (195.3 ± 24.16 vs. 235.3 ± 18.47kg), knee flexor at 60°•S^(-1) peak torque (171.4 ± 46.4 vs. 205.7 ± 20.46 N•m), 28 m dash (4.13 ± .20 vs. 4.07 ± .19 sec), static jump (44.6 ± 4.53 vs. 47.7 ± 6.14 cm), counter movement jump (51.4 ± 4.39 vs. 54.7 ± 6.09 cm) and drop jump (44.7 ± 5.28 vs. 47.9 ± 6.09 cm) (p ＜ .05). No significant difference was found between WP and PW. In conclusion, regardless of training order, complex training improved lower body strength, speed and power in basketball players.
