The purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of circuit training on selected physical fitness variables of basketball players. Thirty out of players were randomly selected from Bharathiar University, Coimbatore the selected players were divided into two groups consisting of 15 players. No attempt was made equate the groups. The age of the subjects ranged between 20 to 25 years. The influence of the circuit training was assessed on selected variables. The training load was increased from the maximum working capacity of the subject doing pilot study. The duration of the training period was restricted to eight weeks and the number of sessions per week was confined to three. The data obtained from all the groups before and after the experimental period were statistically analyzed by dependent‘t’ test to find out the significant improvement if any, 0.05 level of confidence was fixed to the level of significance between pre and posttest means of all groups. Pre and post test was conducted on separate days with warm up. The speed measured by 50 meter dash in seconds, flexibility measured by sit and reach test. Further, the findings confirmed the circuit training is suitable protocol to bring out the desirable changes over the speed, flexibility of basketball players.Pages: 177-180 | 217 Views 54 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
