The purpose of the present study was to find out the effect of par course training on speed and leg strength.
Methods: For this purpose, 30 male players from various games and sports, studying Bachelor Degree in the Department of Physical Education and Sports Sciences, Chaudhary Charan Singh University, Meerut, Uttar Pradesh were selected as subjects and their age between 18 and 23 years. They were divided into two equal groups, each group consisted of fifteen subjects, in which, Group – I underwent par course training and Group – II acted as control that did not participate in any special activities apart from their regular curricular activities. The training period for this study was three days (alternative days) per week for twelve weeks. Prior to and after the training period the subjects were tested on speed and leg strength. Speed was assessed by administering 50 meters dash and leg strength was measured by using leg lift with dynamometer. The Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was used to find out any significant difference that was exists between the parcourse training group and control group on selected criterion variables.
Results: The result of the study shows that parcourse training group has improved the speed and leg strength significantly (p<.05) when compared as the control group. Conclusions: It was concluded from the results of the study that parcourse training has improved the speed and leg strength.
