Effectiveness of basket-ball sports specific training program on selective fitness variables in basket-ball players


Author(s): Pradeep Borkar and Dr. AN Badwe

Abstract: Background: The basketball player needs to train multiple components of fitness like agility, strength, anaerobic capacities, and endurance etc.8 In the present study sport specific training program will be employed which will incorporate skills and movements specific to the sport, at intensities sufficient to promote aerobic and anaerobic adaptations. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a basketball sports specific training on physical and physiological related variables of basket ball playersMethod: After approval of institutional ethical 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= 39 participants were recruited according to the selection criteria and were randomly allocated to experimental group (n=19) and control group (n=19). The experimental group underwent training for 45min, 3 times per week for 6 weeks; the control group performed conventional exercises for 6 weeks. Data was collected statistical analysis was done and result and conclusion were withdrawn.Results: After 6 weeks training, the experimental group has demonstrated significant improvement in Anaerobic power and anaerobic capacity improved by 335.68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 a p value of < 0.05 compared with control group. While agility and vertical jump height has also shown improvement with a p value >0.05.Conclusion: In the present Sports specific training program composed of multiple skill training components of strength, endurance, agility proprioception and flexibility 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 and players in developing the physical and physiological components of fitness and to improve athletes’ performance.
