Effect of strength and endurance training and combined strength endurance and mobility training on leg strength and vital capacity


Author(s): P Ramesh and Dr. R Venkatachalapathy

Abstract: The purpose of the present study was to find the effect of strength training and endurance training and combination of strength, endurance and mobility training on leg strength and vital capacity. For this purpose, sixty male hockey players from various colleges around Namakall Town, Tamilnadu, in the age group of 17 – 25 years were selected. They were divided into four equal groups (n = 15), in which group – I underwent strength training group – II underwent endurance training, group – III combination of strength, endurance and mobility training and group – IV acted as control group who did not participate in any special training. The training period for this study was three days in a week for twelve weeks. Prior to and after the training period the subjects were tested for leg strength and vital capacity. Leg strength was assessed by administering leg lift with dynamometer and vital capacity was assessed by using expirograph. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to find out the significant difference if any, among the experimental groups and control group on selected criterion variables separately. Since there were four groups involved in this study the Scheffẻ S test was used as pos-hoc test. It was concluded from the result of the study that the strength training, endurance training and combination of strength, endurance and mobility training groups has positively altered the criterion variables, such as, leg strength and vital capacity. The result of the study also shown that there was no significant difference occurred between the experimental groups, such as, strength training, endurance training group and combination of strength, endurance and mobility training group.
