The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of core stability training on breath holding time and respiratory rate among volleyball players. In this study twenty (n=20) college volleyball players were randomly selected from Anand District, Gujarat, India. The age of subject’s were ranged from 18 to 23 years. The selected participants were randomly divided into two groups such as Group ‘I’ underwent core stability training (n=10) and Group ‘II’ acted as control group (n-10). Group ‘I’ underwent core stability training for five days and one session per day and each session lasted for 60 minutes for six week period. Group ‘II’ was not covered to any specific training but trainees participated in regular activities. The data on breath holding time and respiratory rate collected and administering by nostril hold method (seconds) and observing the raise and fall of the chest (numbers). The pre and post-tests data collected on selected criterion variables before and immediately after the training programme. The pre and post-test scores were statistically examined using dependent-‘t’ test and Analysis of co-variance (ANCOVA) for each and every selected variable separately. It was concluded that the core stability training group had shown significantly improved in breath holding time and respiratory rate. However the control group had not shown any significant improvement on any of the selected variables such as breath holding time and respiratory rate.Pages: 82-85 | 303 Views 59 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
