Abstract:
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of eight week circuit weight training on physical fitness variables of Pondicherry university cricket players. A total of thirty (N=30) men Cricket players were selected from Pondicherry Engineering College and Pondicherry University Campus. The age of the subjects ranged from 18 to 24 years and fifteen (N=15) players from each college. The Engineering College players were acted as control group and Pondicherry University Campus players acted as experimental group. Total duration was for eight weeks with three days per week. Control group was not involved in any training. All the subjects were tested on the selected physical fitness variables such as leg strength, leg explosive power and abdominal strength endurance before and after eight week of circuit weight training. The data pertaining to the physical fitness variables were statistically analyzed with analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). In all cases 0.05 level of confidence was fixed as a level of confidence to test the hypothesis. The finding of the study reviles that the experimental group had made a significant different in all the selected physical fitness variables such as leg strength, leg explosive power and abdominal strength endurance when compared to control group. Hence it was concluded that eight week of circuit weight training improved the selected physical fitness variables of Pondicherry university men cricket players.
