The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of aerobic exercises and ladder training on physical and physiological parameters among school level cricket players. Forty-five (45) male cricket players were purposely selected from Government Higher Secondary School Bugam and Government Boys Higher Secondary School Yaripora, of (UT) Jammu and Kashmir. These players have to participate in district level championship. The mean of the players were: (15±0.9 years, height of 168.10±4.15 centimetres, 58.70±3.30 kg were chosen). All the subjects were tested to assess the cardiorespiratory endurance and agility before (pre-test) and after 8-weeks training period (post-test). Cardiorespiratory endurance was assessed by coopers 12 min Run/walk testing. Agility was assessed by Illinois Agility test. The subjects were randomly segregated into three groups; aerobic exercises, (12 exercises for two sessions per week) (ATG-I = 15), ladder training (12 exercises for three sessions per week) (LTG- II= 15), and control group (CG = 15) didn’t take part in any special training. Cardiorespiratory endurance and agility was improved significantly in both training groups (p<0.05). Aerobic exercises group was much better than ladder training group in cardiorespiratory endurance and ladder training was much better in agility than aerobic exercises training group. This may be due to the nature of trainings and type of exercises given. It was concluded that cricket game requires fast changes in direction, cardiorespiratory endurance for running, jumps for fielding, forward lunges and much more around the ground. Cricket coaches should include aerobic exercise and ladder training exercises in training programme. Pages: 307-310 | 84 Views 27 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
