Author(s): Sameer Bashir and Dr. R Muthueleckuvan
The aim of this study was to determine the effect of mountaineering Training Program on physical fitness components such as arm and shoulder strength of moderate altitude inhabitents. For the purpose of the study fifty male students were selected as subject form the Jawahar Institute of mountaineering and winter sports Phalgam, Anantanag (J&K). The age of the students which serve as subject was ranged between 18 - 26 years, which was confirmed from institute record. The subjects were divided into two equal groups, Group A- Experimental (N =25) and Group- B as Control Group (N=25). All the selected subjects were informed about the aim and method of the study. The experimental group was given special training for twelve week. The control group was not given any training rather than their daily work routines. The obtained data from the experimental and control group before and after the experimental period were statistically analyzed with dependent "t"-test and analysis of covariance (ANOVA). The level of significance was set at 0.05 levels. The result of the study showed that the 12 weeks training program had significant improvement on selected physical fitness components such as arm and shoulder strength.
