Kho-kho is Indian team sports which needs high endurance, good motor, sensory skills, neurological, cardio-respiratory, and musculoskeletal systems. The motor skills focus on good speed, agility, co-ordination, strength, and sudden variations in paces. The present study is to see the effects of fartleks training to improve endurance ability in male kho-kho players. A randomized controlled clinical trial study, 12min Walk/Run Test as a measuring tool to asses endurance ability. 60 male kho-kho players were selected and divided equally in control and experimental group. The statistical analysis was done using Paired and Unpaired T test resulted increase in endurance with significant difference (p value<0.0001), resting pulse rate (p value<0.0001), resting respiratory rate (p value<0.0226), 3min pulse rate (p value<0.0002) 3min respiratory rate (p value <0.0030) with confidence level set as p value <0.0001. Fartleks training improve early endurance ability in male kho-kho players, enhanced recovery phase and delayed early fatigue.Pages: 254-259 | 640 Views 95 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
