The results of this study revealed that (i) AR combined with SS exercise more effectively enhanced agility than did AR combined with DS exercise; (ii) AR combined with SS or DS more effectively increased flexibility than AR alone; (iii) AR combined with SS led to a reduction in relative average power, and relative maximum power, however no significant effect on minimum power was detected; (iv) the fatigue index was greater following "AR" and "AR combined with DS" than following "ARcombined with SS".
