The objective of this study was to analyze resistance training and concurrent resistance and aerobic training impact on selected skill performances of football players. To achieve the purpose of this study, forty eight men football players were selected as subjects. The subjects were selected in the age group of 18 to 22 years and they were randomly assigned into three equal groups of 16 each. Experimental group-I performed resistance training, experimental group-II performed concurrent resistance and aerobic training and group-III was acted as control. The football skills such as dribbling and passing were selected as dependent variable. The research design of the study was random group design. The pre and post test data collected from the experimental and control groups on selected dependent variables were statistically analyzed by paired ‘t’ test and Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA). Since, three groups were involved, whenever the obtained ‘F’ ratio value in the adjusted post test mean was found to be significant, the Scheffe’s test was applied as post hoc test. Further, percentage of changes was calculated to find out the improvement in selected dependent variables due to the impact of experimental treatment. It is concluded that due to the effect of resistance training and concurrent training the dribbling and passing skill performances of the football players were significantly improved however, concurrent training was significantly better than resistance training in improving dribbling skill performances whereas no significant differences were found between resistance training and concurrent training in improving passing skill performances.
