The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of circuit training on endurance of secondary school hockey players. For this purpose, sixty secondary school Hockey players in the age group of 14 - 16 years were selected as subjects. he selected subjects were divided into four equal groups, in which, Group-I: Circuit Training Group (CTG) (n=15) underwent resistance and plyometric training in the form of circuit; Group-II: Interval Training Group (ITG) (n=15) underwent aerobic and anaerobic training in the form of interval; Group-III: Combined Circuit and Interval Training Group (CCITG) (n=15) underwent combined training both in the form of circuit & interval form and Group–IV: Control Group (CG) (n=15) acted as control which did not participate any training but allowed to take part in their regular Hockey training and playing game.The training programme was carried out for this study was five days per week for twelve weeks. Prior to and after the training period the subjects were tested for endurance. This was assessed by administering Cooper’s 12 minutes Run/Walk. The statistical tool used for the present study ANCOVA along with Scheffe’s Post Hoc Analysis. After applying ANCOVA, it was found that there was significant improvement in the cardio respiratory endurance for Circuit Training Group, Interval Training Group and Combined Circuit and Interval Training Group (CCITG) when compared with control group. Based on the results it was concluded that the CCITG experimental group was significantly improved the Endurance of secondary school Hockey players when compared with Interval Training Group (ITG) and Circuit Training Group (CTG)Pages: 24-27 | 1220 Views 108 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
