Author(s): T Sathees Kumar and Dr. E Simson Jesudass
Complex training has been recommended as a method of incorporating plyometrics, sport-specific movement with strength training little data exists on systemic training programs to improve skill related physical fitness in hockey players. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a complex training program on skill related physical fitness in hockey players. To find out among the effect of complex training, the investigator selected 40 intercollegiate level Hockey players who were randomly divided into two groups. One group was formed as the experimental group and the other group was called control group. The experimental group was given complex l training for six Weeks, consisting of Squats, Bench Press, Barbell Curls, Lying Triceps Extension, Leg Press, Jump to Box, Medicine ball chest pass, Bounding, Medicine ball overhead pass, Lateral Hurdle Jump and the control group was not provided with any experimental treatment. Initial scores on selected skill related physical fitness variables, agility, speed, and coordination of the subjects were collected using standard tests.The complex training program intervention for 6 weeks improved their skill related physical fitness of the hockey players. Based on the following fact we should consider the need and importance of skill related physical fitness in sports of hockey.
