Aim: To study the effect of sport-specific circuit training on shoulder muscle endurance and swim performance in semi-professional freestyle swimmers. Purpose: To determine whether a sport-specific circuit training will improve shoulder muscle endurance and swim performance in semi-professional freestyle swimmers between age 15-25years. Study Design: Randomized control trial. Procedure: Ethical approval was taken from the committee.30 subjects were selected to execute sport-specific circuit training of which 27 subjects completed the study. Approval and written consent was taken from the subjects. Subjects (14 control, 13 experimental) were randomly assigned to control and experimental group. Experimental group completed a 6-week sport-specific circuit training. The outcome measures were 900 push-up test and 50m speed test. The outcome measures of both the groups were taken before and after training. Result: The data collected was statistically analysed by paired t-test and un-paired t-test. From the result of the statistics, the endurance and speed of the experimental group (p=0.0001 and p=0.05) was increased significantly. Conclusion: This study concludes that sport-specific circuit training is more effective in improving shoulder muscle endurance and swim performance compared to regular training group in freestyle swimmers.Pages: 65-69 | 917 Views 115 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
