Influence of resistance and endurance training and combination of resistance and endurance training on back strength flexibility and cardio-respiratory endurance


Author(s): Dr. S Chidambara Raja

Abstract: The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of resistance training and combination of resistance and endurance training on back strength, flexibility and cardiorespiratory endurance. Sixty male students aged between 17 and 22 years studying in various faculties of Annamalai University were selected. They were divided into four equal groups, each group consisting of fifteen subjects, in which group I (n=15) underwent resistance training, group II (n = 15) underwent endurance training, group III (n = 15) underwent combination of resistance and endurance training for three days (alternative days) per week for twelve weeks, and group IV (n=15) acted as control, which did not participate in any training. The subjects were tested on selected criterion variables such as back strength, flexibility and cardiorespiratory endurance at prior to and immediately after the training period. For testing the back strength, the dynamometer was used, to test the flexibility, sit and reach test was administered, to measure cardiorespiratory endurance, Cooper’s 12 minutes run/walk test was administered. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to find out the significant difference if any, between the experimental groups and control group on selected criterion variables separately. Since three groups were involved in the present study, the Scheffé S test was used as post-hoc test. The selected criterion variables such as back strength, flexibility and cardio-respiratory were improved significantly for all the training groups when compared with the control group and the back strength and flexibility were improved significantly for resistance training group and the endurance training group has improved cardiorespiratory endurance significantly.
