The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of training type (anaerobic) on Hoffmann reflex (H- reflex) response parameters in sprinters & non-athletes. For this purpose, 10 male Sprinters (Group 1) and 10 male non-athletes (Group 2) were involved in this study in which the amplitude and latency values of H- reflex were measured with the help of an equipment called “Neuroperfect” (Medicaid Systems, India). Statistical analysis was performed by using statistical software ?SPSS,? means ± SD and student?s t test was used. The mean age and body height of group 1 & 2 were 23.93 ± 2.65 years & 173.12±6.40 cm and 24.28 ± 2.45 years & 168.80±3.25 cm respectively. The H-reflex amplitude and latency values found in groups 1 & 2 were 3.13±0.22 mV & 22.77±2.82 ms and 6.19±0.44 mV & 26.79±1.85 ms respectively. There was no statistically significant difference between the groups with respect to latencies of H- reflex. In the test group (sprinters), the amplitude of the H-reflex was significantly smaller than the non-athlete group (p
