Comparative Effect of continuous training and Interval Training on Body composition cardiovascular endurance and muscular endurance among inter collegiate athletes


Author(s): Dr. Manikandan S

Abstract: Continuous training is when low- to mid-intensity exercises are performed for more than 20 minutes without resting intervals. Interval training is alternating between higher and lower intensity exercise. Interval training allows you to train at a higher intensity for a greater time than a single, continuous high intensity bout. The aim of the present study was to compare the effect of continuous training and interval training on body composition cardiovascular endurance and muscular endurance among intercollegiate athletes. To achieve the purpose, thirty male Inter collegiate athletes from ANJAC, Sivakasi were selected randomly as subjects. The age of the subjects ranged from 19 to 25 years. The experimental design selected for this study was pre and posttest randomized design. The data were collected from each subject before and after the training period and statistically analyzed by using dependent‘t’ and test analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). Experimental group namely continuous training and interval training groups achieved significant improvement on body composition, cardiovascular endurance and muscular endurance. Significant differences were found between continuous training and interval training groups towards improving the selected criterion variables such as body composition, cardiovascular endurance and muscular endurance. Continuous training had a better difference on the improvement of selected dependent variables namely body composition, cardiovascular endurance and muscular endurance.
