Effect of isolated and combined core strength training and yogic practice on selected speed and power parameter

The core region consists of far more than just the abdominal muscles. In fact, core strength training aims to target all the muscles groups that stabilize the spine and pelvis. It is these muscle groups that are critical for the transfer of energy from large to small body parts during many sporting activities. Purposeful core action requires understanding its function. Yogic practices are supposed to reduce the high activation level and psycho physiological disequilibrium and also contribute to steadiness, biomotor coordination and emotional stability. Such condition of high activation level and psycho physiological imbalance along with emotional instability seems to increase various disorganization of motor responses and tremors. For the purpose of the study 45 students from Government Higher Secondary School, Kumarachi, Tamil Nadu India were selected as subjects. The subjects were divided into Three (3) groups of Fifteen (15), namely core strength group, combined training group, yogic practice training group. The speed and explosive power were selected as biomotor variables. The variables were testes by using 30 m dash and sergeant jump. The experimental groups underwent there training for 12 weeks, 4 days per week, 45 to 60 minutes per day with suitable warming up and cooling down exercise. The criterion variables were tested prior to and immediately after the training programme. The collected data were analysed using ANCOVA (analysis of covariance) and Scheffes post hoc test was applied to know the paired mean differences if the optioned ‘F’ ratio was significant. The level of significance fixed at .05. After investigate the study, there was a significant difference among experimental groups on selected speed and power parameters. The study also shows that the core strength training group shows better improvement on criterion variables when compare with yogic group.
