Description: Background: In youth population, the ability to carry out every day and sports-related activities through well-developed physical fitness is important for current and future health. Among youths, plyometric-jump training (PJT) may provide an effective, safe, accessible, and time-efficient training method that can be easily implemented in sport clubs or schools. There is evidence that the maturity status has an impact on training induced gains following PJT in youth. However, to our knowledge, no review has attempted to summarize the large amount (>800 articles) of the currently available literature on the potential effects of PJT on physical fitness in participants according to their maturity status. Aim: The primary aim of this living systematic review with meta-analysis was to assess the available body of peer-reviewed articles related to the effects of PJT on physical fitness outcomes in participants according to their maturity status.
