Physical fitness variables for speed, back strength and cardio respiratory endurance
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Biju Sukumar
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of resistance training, and endurance training on selected physical fitness variables. (n=60) Sixty female students aged between 17 and 25 years were selected for the study. They were divided into three equal groups, each group consisting of (n=15) fifteen subjects in which Group I underwent resistance training, group II underwent endurance training three days per week for twelve weeks and group III acted as control, which did not participate in any training. The subjects were tested on selected criterion variables such as leg strength, back strength and cardio-respiratory endurance at prior to and immediately after the training period. For testing the speed measured by 50 meters dash and back strength, the dynamometer was used and to test the cardio-respiratory endurance, the Cooper’s 12 minutes run/walk test was administered. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to find out the significant difference if any, between the experimental groups and control group on selected criterion variables separately. Since there were four groups involved in the present study, the Scheffé S test was used as post-hoc test. The selected criterion variables such as speed, back strength and cardio-respiratory were improved significantly for all the training groups when compared with the control group and the leg and back strength were improved significantly for strength training group and in cardio-respiratory endurance, the endurance training group was significantly improved.
