Effect of conventional resistance training on selected Motor components among University AthletesAuthor(s):
The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of conventional resistance training on enhancing the quality of performance in motor fitness components such as muscular strength, explosive power and cardio respiratory endurance. For this purpose 30 university athletes, aged 18 to 22 years took part in the study. Subjects were randomly assigned to either conventional resistance training (n=15) or control (n=15) group. The training regimen lasted for eight weeks. The selected criterion variables were assessed using standard tests and procedures, before and after the training regimen. Analysis of covariance was used to determine the significant difference existing between pretest and posttest on selected criterion variables. The analysis of data revealed that eight weeks of conventional resistance training had an impact of 13.91% on muscular strength, 25.57% on explosive power and 18.23% on cardiorespiratory endurance. These results suggest that conventional resistance training has significant influence in improving selected dependent variables.Pages: 23-25 | 1042 Views 31 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
