The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of weight training and game specific exercises on selected physiological variables of men football players. To achieve this purpose of the study forty-five men football players were selected studying Bachelor’s degree in the Department of Physical Education and Sports Sciences, Sri A.V.V.M Pushpam College, Poondi, Tamil Nadu, India at randomly. They were divided into three equal groups of each fifteen players as weight training group (Group I), game specific exercises training group (Group II) and act as control group (Group III). Group I and II were underwent their respective training programme for three days per week for twelve weeks who did not underwent any special training programme apart from their regular physical education curriculum. The following physiological variables such as resting pulse rate and vital capacity were selected as criterion variables. The resting pulse rate was assessed by taking radial pulse rate and vital capacity was assessed by using wet spirometer. All the subjects of three groups were tested on selected criterion variables at prior to and immediately after the training programme as pre and post test selected. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to find out the significant difference if any, among the groups on each selected criterion variables separately. In all the cases, .05 level of confidence was fixed to test the significance, which was considered as an appropriate. There was a significant difference among weight training group, game specific exercises training group and control group on physiological variables among resting pulse rate and vital capacity.Pages: 256-259 | 802 Views 13 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
