Isolated and combined effect of aerobic training and circuit training on selected motor ability components among women volleyball players
AUTHOR(S): S Vijayalakshmi and Dr. A Mahaboobjan
The purpose of the study was to analyze the effect of isolated and combined aerobic training and circuit training on selected motor ability components among women volleyball players. To achieve the purpose of the study, sixty female students studying at various colleges at Kalasalingam Educational Institutions, Krishnankoil, Tamil Nadu, were selected as subjects. All of them were intercollegiate level volleyball players and their age ranged from 18 to 25 years. The selected subjects were randomly assigned into four equal groups of fifteen each (n=15) at random. Group-I underwent aerobic training, group-II underwent circuit training, group-III underwent combined aerobic and circuit training and group-IV acted as control group. The motor ability components were selected as flexibility, muscular strength, muscular endurance and they were assessed by sit and reach test, modified push ups and bend knee sit ups respectively. The data collected from the four groups prior to and post experimentation were statistically analyzed by Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA). Since four groups were involved, whenever obtained ‘F’ ratio for adjusted post test means was found to be significant, the Scheffe’s test was applied as post hoc test to determine the paired mean differences. The experimental groups had significant improvement on selected motor ability components when comparing to the control group.
