Effect of Uphill & Downhill Sprinting and Sled Sprinting On Acceleration Speed and Maximum Speed of 13-14 Years Boys


Author(s): Govinda Rao Itraju, G. Vinod Kumar

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of uphill & downhill sprinting and sled sprinting on acceleration speed and maximum speed of 13-14 years adolescent boys. Total 60 male students were selected randomly as subjects who were used to play regularly in the sports and games from Srikakulam, Andhra Pradesh. The age group of the subjects was between 13-14 years. The subjects were divided into three groups, each group consisting of 20 subjects. Group 1 undergone Uphill & Downhill Sprinting (UDSG), Group 2 was undergone Sled Sprint Training (SSTG) and Group 3 was Control Group (CG) did not participate in any specific training. The experimental groups were undergone training for three alternate days in a week for totally 12 weeks. This study was restricted to selected sprint variables such as Acceleration Speed (AS) and Maximum Speed (MS). Acceleration speed was tested by 30 meters run and maximum speed was tested by 60 meters run. The data were examined by applying analysis of Co-variance and the level of significance was set at 0.05 levels. Based on the analysis of statistical results, it was clearly evident that uphill & downhill sprinting group (UDSG) and sled sprinting training group (SSTG) gave the similar result that is improved acceleration speed (AS) and maximum speed (MS) when compared to control group (CG). There was no significant result were found between experimental groups. There was insignificant result found for CG prior and after experimental duration in both AS and MS.
