The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effects of 12-weeks Physical Exercise Training Program on explosive strength and flexibility of the deaf and dumb children. Sixty deaf and dumb students between the age ranges of 11-18 years were selected for the study from the Sri Sachha Muk and Bhadir Educational Insititute, Bahdurgarh, Haryana. The chosen subjects were further randomly divided into two equivalent groups i.e. experimental group (N=30) and control group (N=30). Physical Exercise Training Program was administered on experimental group for 12 weeks (five days a week), whereas control group followed their daily school routine activity. To check the difference between the pretest and posttest of deaf and dumb students on explosive strength and flexibility student paired ‘t’ test was used and the significance level was set at ≤ 0.05. The result of the study revealed that experimental group shows significant improvements on explosive strength and flexibility of the deaf and dumb students after 12 weeks of Physical Exercise Training Program. However, no significant changes were observed in case of control group on explosive strength and flexibility. The result of the present study demonstrated that physical exercise training program have significant potential to develop various motor ability components among deaf and dumb students.
