The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of resistance, endurance trainings and their combination on selected physical fitness variables. Sixty female college students were divided into four equal groups (n = 15), in which group I underwent resistance training, group II underwent endurance training and group III underwent the combination training for 3 days per week for 12 weeks, and group IV acted as control. The subjects were tested on selected criterion variables such as leg strength, muscular endurance and cardio-respiratory endurance at prior to and immediately after the training. For testing the leg strength, the dynamometer was used, bent knee sit-up test was administered to test muscular endurance and for cardio-respiratory endurance the Cooper’s 12 minutes run/walk test was administered. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used as statistical tool and since four groups were involved in the present study, the Scheffé S test used as post-hoc test. The selected criterion variables were improved significantly for all the training groups when compared with the control group and the leg and muscular endurance were improved significantly for strength training group and the endurance training group has improved cardio-respiratory endurance significantly.Pages: 254-257 | 690 Views 79 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
