Author(s): Mohammad Ashraf Khan and Dr. Anuragini R Bokey
The main purpose of the study was to find out the Effect of Specific Exercise on Hurdle Clearance of Athletes and the allied objectives were (1) To find out the initial performance of hurdler, (2) To find out the improvement in performances and (3) Which exercises are more beneficial for the improvement of hurdle performance. This study was hypnotized that the specific exercise for hurdler will give the positive effect on the hurdle clearance. The Sources of data were collected from the 30 subjects who were studying in the B.P.Ed. Course of Degree College of Physical Education Amravati. In this study 30 subjects were devided into Control ‘A’ and experimental ‘B’group. The subjects for present study were selected by using the Simple Random Sampling Method. After selection of subjects Pre-test of Control ‘A’ and experimental ‘B’group were taken by using Stop watch, Measuring Tape, Gymnastic Mats, Lime Powder, Clapper and Hurdles. The following exercises were given to the experimental group ‘B’. (1) Front and back leg rotation, (2) Trail leg, (3) Hurdle side change, (4) Half hurdling, (4) take off sensation drill and Leg Tapping. The data were analyzed and interpreted by using‘t’ test and the level of significance at 0.05 was adequate for testing the hypothesis. Conclusion: (1) there was significant difference in the performance of initial and final test of the control group. (2) There was a significant improvement in the final test performance of the experimental group. (3) There was a significant improvement of the experimental group in Hurdle clearance test as compared to the performance of control group in the final test. So this indicates that some selected exercises have positive effects up on the Hurdle clearance and (4) Physical activities and regular clearance practice may help in the development of Hurdle clearance, to the control group, but in comparison to the exercises group of experimental, the result of the control group were statistically insignificant.
