Author(s): Bhadresh S Tandel
The purpose of the present investigation was to find out the effect of strength training on selected physical variables of kabaddi players. To achieve the purpose of the study, thirty male inter collegiate kabaddi players were randomly selected as subject from Shri Govind Guru University Godhra. Their age ranged from 17-21years old. The subjects were randomly divided into Strength Training (n=15) and a control group (n=15). Then the subjects voluntarily consented to participate in the study. All tests were carried out before (pre-test) and after the training period (post-test). Strength training Group-I were gone for strength training exercises for three days in a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) for total six weeks. Group- II acted as control. They did not participate in any specific training on equivalence with experimental group. The selected physical variables are Speed (50 yard run), Agility performance (10mts. × 4 shuttle run test) and Muscular Endurance (Sit-up test). To find the mean difference of pre and post treatment ANOVA was applied. The results of this study highlights the potential of using strength training to improve Speed, Agility and muscular endurance, particularly in male inter collegiate Kabaddi players.
