To achieve the purpose, eighty three male physical education students studying B.P.Ed. Courses at Alvas B.P.Ed. Moddigere and General Kariyappa B.P.Ed. College Shimogga during 2015 with age ranging 18-25 were selected at random. They had their credit in participating Intercollegiate, South Zone and All India competitions. The physical fitness variables selected for the study were the Shoulder Strength (Pull ups in nos.); Abdominal Strength (Sit ups in nos.); Agility (Shuttle Run in secs.); Speed (50 meters dash in secs.); Explosive Power (Standing Broad Jump in meters) and Cardiovascular Endurance (600 Meters Run/Walk in minutes). One-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to find out the significant difference among different disciplines. Further the Scheffe’s Post Hoc test was used to find the significant difference in paired mean scores. It was concluded that there was a significant difference in the Pull Ups, Sit Ups and Speed of the Physical Education Professional students participated in the different competition levels. A better understanding of these relationships will help to understand the power and endurance and also help to plan sport specific strength training at South Zone, All India and National level athletes.
