Effects of interval training on speed related parameters among football players
Author(s): Dr. M Velmurugan
The purpose of the study was to find out the effects of interval training on speed related parameters among football players. To achieve this purpose of the study twenty men football players were selected randomly from the Department of physical education and sports sciences, Annamalai University, Chidambaram. They were divided into two equal groups of each ten players. Group I underwent interval training for three days per week for eight weeks and Group II act as control group who did not underwent any special training programme apart from their regular physical education curriculum. The following variables such as speed and speed endurance were selected as criterion variables. The speed rate was assessed by 50 meters dash and speed endurance was assessed by using 110 meters. All the subjects of two groups were tested on selected criterion variables at prior to and immediately after the training programme. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to find out the significant difference if any, among the groups on each selected criterion variables separately. In all the cases, 0.05 level of confidence was fixed to test the significance, which was considered as an appropriate. The results of the study revealed that there was a significant difference between interval training group and control group on selected criterion variables such as speed and speed endurance. And there was significant improvement as selected criterion variables namely speed and speed endurance.
