A comparative study of physical fitness status between regular and summer in-service sport science female students: The case of Wollo UniversityAuthor(s):
The study was conducted to compare the physical fitness status of regular and summer in service Sport Science Female Students of Wollo University in the year 2017/2018. As a subject of the study the researcher selected 50 female participants, half of them were from regular Sport Science students and the rest half were students from summer in service Sport Science program. The researcher used purposive sampling technique to select the Subjects. The study used a standardized instrument of American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD) (1976, 1980), (2010), there were 4 activities in field tests: 1 mile run cooper test, 50m run test, vertical jump test and standing broad jump test. To assess the significant differences of their physical fitness status, independent t-test was applied. The findings of this study reveal that there are statistically significant differences between regular and summer female students considering age, weight, height, BMI, endurance, vertical jump performance and broad jump performance as a parameter, though some insignificant differences were observed on their speed performance. Based on the analysis made, regular students were found to be good at endurance and explosive muscular power compared with summer in-service students. On the basis of the above narration, the researcher recommended that the University should organize fitness test programs and design the possible means by which those in-service trainees can get access on their job sites; whereas, it has to do more on female regular students so as to progress their physical fitness performance to an excellent level. Moreover, it is found to be advisable if students start physical training during their school age so that they can be fit throughout their life.Pages: 107-111 | 206 Views 24 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
