To study the effect of sports specific training program on selective physical and physiological variables in basketball playersAuthor(s):
Dr. Tanya Brijwasi and Pradeep BorkarAbstract: Background:
Basketball sports demands high level of cardiovascular, musculoskeletal and metabolic capacities and this demands of the game place players at risk of sustaining injuries. However, the rate of injuries in game situations were 2 times higher than in practices and this is due to the fact that movements during the game are unpredictable. Therefore, a player should have a high level of fitness in order to perform the workload and basketball specific rapid movements. The proper sports specific conditioning program is need of an hour to optimize the greater potentials of players. Purpose of the study was to evaluate the effect of sports specific circuit training on selective fitness variables.
Method: Ethical clearance was taken from the institutional committee and Subjects were selected according to the eligibility criteria, informed consent was taken prior to the study and subjects were selected by simple random sampling method. n= 36 participants were recruited according to the selection criteria and were randomly allocated to experimental group (n=18) and control group (n=18). The experimental group underwent training for 45min, 3 times per week for 4 weeks; the control group performed conventional exercises for 4 weeks. Data was collected statistical analysis was done and result and conclusion were withdrawn.
Results: After 4 weeks training, the experimental group has demonstrated significant improvement in Anaerobic power and anaerobic capacity improved by 335.68 (95% CI 137.43 to 533.92) with an p value of < 0.05 compared with control group. While agility and vertical jump height has also shown improvement with an p value >0.05.
Conclusion: Sports specific training program composed of multiple skill training components has shown significant effect in improving anaerobic power and capacity and has shown beneficial effect on agility and vertical jump height. However, these sports specific circuit training can be useful for the coaches with players in developing the physical and physiological levels and to improve athletes’ performance.
