The investigator has selected twenty collegiate men students at random, their age ranged from 18 to 22 years. Subjects underwent weight training programme for 6 days per weeks. The subjects were subjected to the six week training programme. Each and every one the subjects were informed about the aim of the investigation. Hence the present work was planned to study the effect of weight training on muscular strength (dynamic) and muscular endurance of arm and shoulders, muscular strength and endurance (trunk) and explosive strength of legs. The statistical analysis and interpretation was done on the basis of data collection. The data of before and after test was compared by using paired‘t’ test. The level of significance was set at 0.05 level of confidence. Our study shows that weight training for 6 months improves muscular strength (dynamic) and muscular endurance of arm and shoulders, muscular strength and endurance (trunk) and explosive strength of legs. It is suggested that weight training be introduced at college level in order to improve physical fitness components, overall health and performance of each and every one.
