K Velmurugan, Dr. G RajamohanAbstract:
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of resistance training on selected performance related fitness variables among untrained men. To achieve this purpose, 40 male students studying in various classes were randomly selected as subjects from Mailam Engineering and Technology, villupuram, Tamilnadu. The age of the subjects were ranged from 18 to 25 years. The subjects were further classified at random into two equal groups of 20 subjects each. Group - I underwent resistance training for three days per week for twelve weeks and group - II acted as control. The selected criterion variables namely cardiovascular endurance and explosive strength were assessed before and after the training period. The collected data were statistically analyzed by using Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA). From the results of the study it was found that there was a significant improvement on explosive strength among the resistance training group when compared with the control group and there was no significant change on cardio respiratory endurance among the resistance training group when compared with the control group.Pages: 421-423 | 1249 Views 26 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
