The study aimed to find out the effect of training on physiological parameters of Indian hockey player. 33 hockey players (age: 19.22±1.58, height: 173.4±5.51, weight: 64.7±5.63kg) who were trained in SAI, NSSC, Bangalore were volunteered for the present study. These athletes were given training according to the scientific training principles and technique of program design. At the two different phases of training i.e., preparatory phase and competitive phase the physiological parameters viz., VO2max, Heart Rate (HR) @ 8km/ speed, HR @ 10 Km per speed, HR maximum, Recovery HR (after 3 min), back strength, grip strength, flexibility, fatigue index, anaerobic peak lactate after 3 minutes recovery, body fat percentage, muscle mass and bone mass were measured with all safety precautions. The data were statistically analyzed by pooled “t”-test comparing preparatory and competitive phase values of selected variables using SPSS software. The results revealed that there was a significant increase (P<0.001) in the back strength, grip strength (left and right hand), flexibility and fatigue index in competitive phase compared to the preparatory phase. Whereas, significant decrease was observed in HR @ 8Km /hr speed in competitive phase compared to preparatory phase. Study results indicate that the systematic training protocol will lead to enhance the performance related parameters of athletes by adopting training induced physiological changes.
