The purpose of the research was to find out the influence of wall ladder exercise and circuit training on physiological variables. To achieve the purpose of this research, 60 students at school level, male football players in the age group of 13 to 17 years. The selected subjects were divided into three groups of twenty each. Thus, wall ladder exercise and circuit trainings were selected as independent variables and physiological variables namely Vital capacity and cardiovascular endurance were selected as dependent variables. The training period was delimited to twelve weeks, in which wall ladder exercise and circuit trainings were given to respective experimental groups (Group-I & Group-II). The group-III acted as control and did not participate in any systematic training. Data were collected before and after training programme on Vital capacity and cardiovascular endurance. The collected data were statistically treated by using ANCOVA. When the obtained ‘F’ ratio was significant, Scheffe’s post hoc test was used to find out the significant paired mean differences. In all the cases, 0.05 level of confidence was fixed to test the significance. It is inferred that the twelve weeks of wall ladder exercise and circuit training programs have significantly improved Vital capacity and cardiovascular endurance. The result further reveals that the wall ladder exercise group has shown significant improvement in Vital capacity has compared to the circuit training group, circuit training group shows significant improvement in cardiovascular endurance when compared to wall ladder exercise group. Participation in wall ladder exercise and circuit trainings resulted in a significant development in experimental groups when compared to control group.
