The science of sports training is a recent to the field of sports science. The sports science discipline have improved at a very fast pace in the past few decades. The knowledge gained by these disciplines has to be understood by the coaches and trainers to apply it correctly to the training process. But majority of the coaches do not have sufficient scientific background and training to make full and effective use of the knowledge acquired by the sports science disciplines. This creates a gap between scientists and coaches. The science of training with its workers having sufficient background of science and sports are able to fill this gap and can become mediator between the scientists and the coaches. The Purpose of the Study Effect Of Functional Training and Resistance Training On Reaction Time and Blocking among Female Volleyball Players The study was formulated as a true random group design consisting of a pre-test and post-test. The subjects (N=60) were randomly assigned to three equal groups of twenty female volleyball players in each. The groups were assigned as experimental group I – (Functional Training), Experimental Group II (Resistance Training) and control group respectively. Pre-tests were conducted for all the 60 subjects on selected physical fitness and performance variables. After the experimental period of twelve weeks post-test were conducted and the scores were recorded. The post-tests were conducted on the above said dependent variables after a period of twelve weeks training on functional training and resistance training. The difference between initial and final scores of selected variables was the effect of respective experimental treatments. The statistical significance was determined using statistical application ANCOVA. In all cases 0.05 levels was fixed to test the significance.Pages: 10-13 | 308 Views 17 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
