Author(s): Dr. S Blessy Selva Arasan
The purpose of the study was to assess the result of Swiss ball training on core strength and stability and flexibility of university male players. Thirty (N=30) male university players were selected randomly as subjects, their age ranged from 19 to 23 years from Kalasalingam academy of research and education (Deemed to be university), Krishnankoil, Virudhunagar, Tamil Nadu, India. The selected players were divided into two groups of fifteen each. The group - I was control group (CG) and group - II was the Swiss ball training group (SBTG). The Swiss ball training group was underwent Swiss ball exercise programme for five days in a week for 12 weeks from 6.30am to 7.30am. The selected dependent variables are core strength, stability and flexibility. Swiss ball exercises are seated circles, reverse twist, normal sit-ups, hip rolls, bridging, normal oblique, reverse back extension, leg roll, reverse crunch, abdominal ball. The control group did not take part in any special training programmes. The core strength and stability was tested by core strength and stability test and the flexibility was tested with sit and reach test. The collected data from the CG and SBTG group prior to and immediate after the training programme on selected criterion variables were statistically analyzed with analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). The result indicates that the SBTG was compared to the CG, it was much improvement on core strength, stability and flexibility.
