R Saravanan and Dr. P Manju PushpaAbstract:
Background: To achieve the purpose of the study high intensity training was given to improve performance related variables of collegiate volleyball players.
Objectives: To observe the effect of regular high intensity training on speed, explosive power, flexibility, of collegiate volleyball players.
Material and Method: The study was carried out with forty (40) male volleyball players aged between 17 to 25 years. Subjects were divided into two groups randomly named as Group-I Experimental training group and Group-II control group, twenty subjects (20) in each group. The variable selected for the study were Performance fitness parameters namely speed, leg explosive power and flexibility were measured. All the subjects were tested on selected variables, before and after the high intensity interval training program. In order to find out the significant improvement data was analyzed using paired ‘t’ test.
Results: It was observed that there was a significant improvement in the HIIT group as compared to control group in speed (8.84 ± 0.75), leg explosive power (1.51 ± 0.18) and flexibility (25.60 ± 2.41).
Conclusion: The findings suggest that HIIT helps to enhance performance variables in collegiate volleyball players. Pages: 464-467 | 250 Views 6 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
