The purpose of the present study is to find out the individualized and comparative effect of balance exercise training program on static balance of male handball players at school level. To achieve the purpose of the present study, 48 subjects, the male handball players studying in schools and participated in the inter school competitions are selected as samples using the random sampling method. As a experimental design, pre-post random group experimental design is employed in the study. The selected subjects are equally divided into two groups and named as experimental group and control group. Experimental group is named as balance exercise training group. Subjects of both the groups are tested on static balance. It was considered as pre -test score. After completion of the pre –test, the subjects of balanced exercise group are treated with the balance exercises for three days a week totally 12 weeks. The subjects of control group are followed their own traditional training other than the specific training. After completion treatment period, subjects of both the balance exercise training group and control group are tested as such in the pre-test and considered this as post test score. To achieve the purpose of both the individualized and comparative effect the collected data are tested by the statistical techniques of Paired-test and Analysis of co-variance. The results of the Paired t-test is explained that the changes from the pre-test to post test on static balance is significant to the subjects of the balance exercise group whereas the subjects for the control group, the changes from the pre-test to post test on the static balance is statistically not significant. Further, as the primary objective of comparing the effect of balance exercise training program on the static balance, the results of analysis of covariance is explained positively are favored to the subjects of balance exercise training group. 0.05 level is used as the level of significance to test the significance of results derived in this study.Pages: 285-288 | 1411 Views 15 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
