AUTHOR(S): R Karthikeyan and Dr. S Mariappan
The primary aim of this study is to find out the effect of interval training on speed & explosive power among inter collegiate football players. To achieve the purpose 20 football players those who participate in the intercollegiate tournaments were selected from PSN Engineering college, Meelathiediyoor, Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu, India and their age ranged from 18 to 25 years. The participants were randomly divided into two groups with 10 participants each namely experimental and control groups. Experimental group underwent interval training programme for a period of 12 weeks. Speed and explosive power were selected as dependent variables. Speed was measured with 50 mts run and Explosive power measured with Standing broad Jump. Pre and post tests randomized control group design was used as experimental test. The collected data from the subjects were analyzed with the paired sample t- test and Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) at 0.01 level of Significance. It was concluded that speed and explosive power had significantly improved due to 12 weeks of interval training and control group didn’t produced any changes on selected dependent variables.
