Effect of specific training programme in altering the reaction time of the hurdlers
AUTHOR(S): A Srinivasan and Dr. G Santosh Kumar
The objective of this study was to examine the effect of specific training programme in altering the reaction time of the hurdlers. To achieve the purpose of the study thirty male students studying bachelor’s degree in physical education in the Department of Physical Education, Annamalai University Chidambaram, Tamilnadu, India, were selected as participants and their age ranged from 18 to 22 years. The selected participants (N=30) were classified into three equal groups of ten each (n=10) at random. Group-I underwent speed training, group-II underwent plyometric training and group-III acted as control. The training regimen lasted for twelve weeks. The selected dependent variable reaction time was assessed using standard tests and procedures, before and after the training regimen. Analysis of covariance was used to determine the significant difference existing between pretest and posttest on selected dependent variables. The results suggest that both the speed training and plyometric training are significantly improved the reaction time of the hurdlers however, speed training was found better than plyometric training in improving reaction time.
