Author(s): T Parasuraman and Dr. V Mahadevan
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of 6 weeks Kettlebell training on core strength and muscular endurance in volleyball players. To achieve the purpose of the study thirty subjects (N=30), who had past experience of at least minimum one year in volleyball and only represented collegiate level tournament volleyball men players were randomly selected as a subjects from University of Madras. The subjects were aged between 18 to 25 years. The selected subjects were randomly assigned into two equal groups of 15 each, such as experimental and control group. The experimental group participated in the kettlebell training for 6 weeks, 3 days in a week, one session per day, each section lasted 30minutes, and the control group did not participate in any kind of special training programme apart from the daily physical activities. The selected variables such as core strength and muscular endurance were measured by plank and sit-ups. The subjects of two groups were tested on selected variables prior and immediately after the training period. The collected data were analysed statistically through analyze of covariance (ANCOVA) to find the significance difference. The 0.05 level of confidence was fixed to test the level of significance difference, the result of the study showed that systematic practice of kettlebell training improved the core strength and muscular endurance in volleyball players.
