Effect of swiss ball exercises on muscular strength and endurance in male students


Author(s): Dr. Mukesh Kumar Mishra and Dr. Shashi Kanaujia

Abstract:
Purpose: The Purpose of the study was to find out the effect of swiss ball exercises on muscular endurance and strength of male students.
Selection of Subjects: For the present study 24 male students from Department of Physical Education, Guru Ghasidas Vishwavidyalaya, Bilaspur, and Chhattisgarh were selected randomly as the subjects for the study. The age of the subjects were ranged between 20-25 years.
Selection of Variables: The variables selected for the present study were swiss ball training (SBT) as independent variable, Muscular Endurance, Back Strength and Leg Strength as dependent variables.
Methodology: For the study pretest – posttest randomized group design, which consists of control group (CG, N=12) and experimental group (N=12) i.e. swiss ball training group (SBTG, N=12) were used. The data were collected through the pretest, before training and posttest, after twelve weeks of SBT.
Statistical Technique: To find out the effect of Swiss ball exercises on muscular endurance and strength of the subjects the pretest and post test scores were analyzed by using Descriptive analysis, and paired t-test were used, the data analyzed with the help of SPSS (21.0 version) software and the level of significance was set at 0.05 level of confidence.
Result: The t-value of SBTG and CG in relation to leg strength were found insignificant, as the p-value was higher than .05 (p>0.05). For back strength the t-value of SBTG was found significant, as the p-value was lesser than .05 (p<0.05). Another result was showed that the significant difference between pre and posttest of SBTG in relation to muscular endurance as the p-value was lesser than .05 (p<0.05).
Conclusion: It can be concluded that the Swiss ball core exercises were effective for improvement in back strength and muscular endurance. Whereas Swiss ball core exercises were not effective for improvement in leg strength.
