Analysis of the Changes on Anaerobic Power in Response to Assisted and Resisted Sprint Training among Male Sprinters
Author(s): Dr. I Devi Vara Prasad
The rationale of this study was to analyze the changes on anaerobic power in response to assisted and resisted sprint training among male sprinters. For the purpose of this study, forty five male sprinters from various colleges affiliated to Acharya Nagarjuna University, Ongole, Andhra Pradesh, India, aged 18 to 23 years took part in the study. Subjects were randomly assigned to assisted sprint training group (n=15), resisted sprint training group (n=15) and control (n=15) group. The training regimen lasted for twelve weeks. The assisted sprint training exercises included in this training programme was downhill sprinting, assisted towing and high speed treadmill sprinting. The resisted sprint training exercises included in this training programme was weighted vest, sprint parachutes and harness running. The criterion variable selected was anaerobic power and it was assessed by using Running based anaerobic power test prior to and immediately after the training. Analysis of covariance was employed to establish degree of significant modification on chosen dependent variable. The findings of the study revealed that due to the effect of twelve weeks of assisted and resisted sprint training the anaerobic power of male sprinters was significantly improved.
