Abstract: The purpose of the study was to find out the combined and individualized effect of weight training and game specific exercises on selected physical and physiological variables of men football players in Pondicherry state. 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, Pondicherry University, Pondicherry state, 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 speed and systolic blood pressure were selected as criterion variables. The speed was assessed by taking in seconds and systolic blood pressure was assessed by using sphygmomanometer, stethoscope. 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 physical and physiological variables among speed and systolic blood pressure.
