AUTHOR(S): G Gokulkrishnan
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of varied resistance circuit weight training on cardiovascular fitness. To achieve the purpose sixty male students studying Bachelor degree in Government Arts College, Manalmedu were selected at random as subjects for this study. Their age, height and weight ranged between 18 and 22 years, 154 cms and 174 cms, and 50 kg and 71 kg respectively. They were randomly divided into four groups and each group consisted of fifteen subjects. Group I underwent high intensity circuit weight training, Group II underwent moderate intensity circuit weight training, Group III underwent low intensity circuit weight training, Group IV acted as control group. The criterion variables selected for the study were Cardio Respiratory Endurance and it is measured by coopers 12 minutes run/walk test. The experimental groups participated in their respective training for a period of twelve weeks. The data were collected on cardio vascular endurance of varied resistance circuit weight training groups and control group before and after the training programme. The collected data were analyzed statistically by analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) and Scheffe’s post-hoc test was used to test the paired mean differences.
