Hockey is one of the world’s most and attractive ball game. Present days, this game is being played by implementing new strategies and techniques during training schedules. Hockey is a sport of speed and power. Power is a measure of work performed per unit time. Medicine balls are weighted balls that can be used to develop power. Medicine ball exercises can be built-in in a circuit or interval training forms. Circuit training and interval training are the methods for achieving better explosive power. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of combined circuit and interval training on explosive power of secondary school hockey players. To achieve this purpose, sixty secondary school Hockey players in the age group of 14-16 years were selected as subjects. he selected subjects were divided into four equal groups, in which, Group-I: Circuit Training Group (CTG) (n=15) underwent resistance and plyometric training in the form of circuit; Group-II: Interval Training Group (ITG) (n=15) underwent aerobic and anaerobic training in the form of interval; Group-III: Combined Circuit and Interval Training Group (CCITG) (n=15) underwent combined training both in the form of circuit & interval form and Group–IV: Control Group (CG) (n=15) acted as control which did not participate any training but allowed to take part in their regular Hockey training and playing game. The training programme was carried out for this study was five days per week for twelve weeks. Prior to and after the training period the subjects were tested for explosive power of hand. This was assessed by administering Sitting Medicine Ball Throw measured in meters. The statistical tool used for the present study ANCOVA along with Scheffe’s Post Hoc Analysis. After applying ANCOVA, it was found that there was significant improvement in the hand explosive power for Circuit Training Group, Interval Training Group and Combined Circuit and Interval Training Group (CCITG) when compared with control group. Based on the results it was concluded that the CCITG experimental group was significantly improved the hand explosive power of secondary school Hockey players when compared with Circuit Training Group (CTG) and Interval Training Group (ITG).
