AUTHOR(S): Sunita Rani and Dr. Ashok Malik
The purpose of the study was to explore the effects of Circuit Training on selected physical fitness variables of sportspersons. State level healthy male players of Athletics, Football, Cricket and Hockey were selected for experimentation. Total subjects were 28, ranging 15-19 years of age. All the subjects were divided into two equal groups i.e. Experimental group (n=14) and Control group (n=14). Experimental group was given Circuit training program while Control group was not given any specific training programme. 6 weeks training programme was designed and the subjects were required to attend five days training programme in a week. AAHPER youth fitness test (Revised edition: 1976) was used to collect pre and post test data on selected physical fitness variables. Paired t-test was used to check if any significant difference exists or not between pre and post-test scores of Circuit training group and pre and post test scores of Control group. Independent t-test was employed to check significant difference between pre scores of Circuit training and Control group and post-test scores of Circuit training and Control group and mean, S.D and t-ratio were tested. It was concluded on the basis of results that Circuit training have significant effect on all selected physical fitness variables.
