Abstract: This study investigates the combined effects of Channa Striatus supplementation with countermovement jumping (CMJ) exercise for 12 weeks. It focuses on jumping performance and isokinetic muscular strength and power in young, inactive males. A parallel randomised controlled trial was conducted. Thirty-eight participants aged 21.7 ± 1.44 years old were randomly be recruited and divided into Control (C), Channa Striatus supplementation (CS), Jumping (J) and Combined Channa Striatus supplementation and Jumping (CSJ). The J and CSJ groups performed CMJ exercises for two sessions daily, three alternate days per week. The CS and CSJ groups consumed one tablet of Channa Striatus (500mg) per day. At the pre- and post-test, participants’ body composition, jumping performance, isokinetic muscular peak torque (strength), and power on dominant and non-dominant legs were determined. A repeated measure ANOVA was performed for statistical analysis. After 12 weeks, there was a significant increase in fat-free mass (FFM) (p < 0.05) in the CSJ group. The CS group exhibited a significantly greater (p < 0.05) standing long jump distance, while the CS (p < 0.01), J (p < 0.01), and CSJ (p < 0.05) groups showed a statistically significant increase in vertical jump height. The CMJ force and power showed non-statistically significant increases in all groups. Statistically significant greater values were observed in the J and CSJ groups for dominant and non-dominant leg isokinetic muscular peak torque and power at 60o.s-1 and 300o.s-1 angular velocities compared to the C group. Participants who combined CMJ exercise with Channa Striatus supplementation improved their body FFM, jumping performance, and isokinetic muscular strength and power.
