Effect of specific training programme on stride length and stride frequency of hurdlers
Author(s): A Srinivasan and Dr. G Santosh Kumar
The intention of this study was to investigate the effect of specific training programme on stride length and stride frequency of hurdlers. To achieve the purpose of the study thirty male students studying bachelor’s degree in physical education in the Department of Physical Education, Annamalai University were selected as participants and their age ranged from 18 to 22 years. The selected participants (N=30) were classified into three equal groups of ten each (n=10) at random. Group-I underwent speed training, Group-II underwent plyometric training and group-III acted as control. The training regimen lasted for twelve weeks. The selected dependent variables stride length and stride frequency were assessed using standard tests and procedures, before and after the training regimen. Analysis of covariance was used to determine the significant difference existing between pretest and posttest means on selected dependent variables of experimental and control groups. The results suggest that both the speed training and plyometric training are significantly improved the stride length and stride frequency of hurdlers. However, no significant differences were found between plyometric training group and speed training group in improving stride length and stride frequency.
