The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of high and low velocity resistance training on agility of college male students. To achieve the purpose of the study, forty five men students studying bachelor’s of Engineering, Sri Sai-Ram Engineering College, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India, were randomly selected and divided into three groups of fifteen each. The age of the subjects, ranged from 18 to 24 years. This study consisted of two experimental variables high velocity resistance training and low velocity resistance training. The allotment of groups was done at random, thus Group-I underwent high velocity resistance training, Group-II underwent low velocity resistance training for three days per week for twelve weeks, Group-III acted as control. All the subjects were tested prior to and after the experimentation period. The collected data were statistically treated by using ANCOVA, and 0.05 level of confidence was fixed to test the significance. When the obtained ‘F’ ratio was significant, Scheffe’s post hoc test was used to find out the paired mean difference. The results of the study revealed that there was a significant difference among high velocity resistance training group, low velocity resistance training group as compared to control group on agility. And also it was found that there was a significant improvement on agility due to low velocity resistance training group as compared to high velocity resistance training group.
