Effect of fartlek training on speed and cardio-respiratory endurance of university men students
Author(s): Dr. Nimeshkumar D Chaudhari
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of sand running on speed and cardio respiratory endurance. To achieve this purpose of the study, thirty men students studying in the Department of Physical Education and Sports Sciences, Gujarat Vidyapith, Ahmedabad, Gujarat. India were selected as subjects at random. The age of the subjects were ranged from 18 to 24 years. The selected subjects were divided into two equal groups of fifteen subjects each, such as sand running group and control group. The group I underwent sand running programme for three days per week for twelve weeks. Group II acted as control group did not participate any special training programmes apart from their regular physical education activities as per their curriculum. The following variables such as speed and cardio-respiratory endurance were selected as criterion variables. All the subjects of three groups were tested on selected criterion variables at prior to and immediately after the training programme by using 50 mts run and cooper’s 12 minutes run/walk test respectively. The analysis of covariance was used to analyse the significant difference, if any between the groups. The level of significance to test the “F” ratio obtained by the analysis of covariance was tested at. 05 level of confidence, which was considered as an appropriate. The results of the study revealed that there was a significant difference between sand running group and control group on selected speed and endurance parameters namely speed and cardiorespiratory endurance.
