Comparison of selected psychomotor responses to varying levels of fatigue induced by squat thrust among judoka’s and weightlifters
AUTHOR(S): Parveen Ahmed
The main purpose of the study was to compare the selected psychomotor response to varying levels of physical fatigue induced by squat trust among judokas and weightlifters. Ten Judokas and ten weightlifter belonging of the age group 18-24 years from L.N.I.P.E., Gwalior were selected randomly as subjects. The necessary data on the selected psychomotor components were collected by administering the test of these variables. The test hand co-ordination was conducted in the Human performance laboratory, whereas, the testing on agility, Balance, Rhythm, Orientation ability were conducted on the field. In order to induce the varying levels of physical fatigue the subject were made to perform squat thrust where the work load was set by Research Scholar. Three different levels of physical fatigue were induced on the subjects. Three sets of scores were obtained on each of the selected psychomotor component i.e. after low level fatigue, after moderate level fatigue and after high level fatigue. The intensity of workload was set by research scholar i.e. 100%, 80%& 60%. After inducement of one particular level of physical fatigue at a time only one test was administered so that the influence of fatigue could be correctly assessed. Further adequate rest period was provided administering the next desired level of physical fatigue. The comparative analysis of effects of varying levels of Physical fatigue of selected psychomotor components of Judokas and Weightlifters was done by two way analysis of variance. Two way analysis of variance revealed that Judokas and weightlifters significantly differed from each other only on one component i.e. balance ability (8.07). Under varying levels of physical fatigue. When considered together, judokas and weightlifters exhibited statistically significant decrease in their performance on the components of balance ability (5.11), Orientation ability (29.44), Rhythm ability (168.75), Agility (4.07) and Two hand coordination (160.42) under varying levels of physical fatigue.
