Author(s): AB Raoof Bhat and Dr. M Kalimuthu
The purpose of this investigation was to find out the influence of series and parallel methods of circuit training and interval training on the muscular endurance of college men. To achieve this purpose, forty five (N= 45) men students studying in Government Degree College Kulgam, Jammu and Kashmir, were selected as subjects. The age ranged between 18 to 23 years. The selected subjects were randomly assigned into three equal groups of fifteen (n=15) subjects each such as series training group, parallel training group and control group. The Group I underwent series method of circuit training and interval training programme three days per week for twelve weeks. Group II underwent parallel method of circuit training and interval training programme for three days per week for twelve weeks and Group III acted as control group which did not participate in any special training programme apart from their regular activities. The muscular endurance was taken as criterion variable for the present study and it was measured by bent knee sit ups. All the subjects of the three group’s were tested on the selected dependable variable at prior to and after the training programme. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to analyse the significant difference, if any, between the groups. Level of confidence was fixed at .05 to find out the level of significance which was considered as an appropriate. The results revealed that there was a significant difference between series training group, parallel training group and control group (28.60 ± 3.22, 30.80 ± 2.45and 22.53 ± 1.55) on muscular endurance and also the result of the study shows that the improvement of (2.15) on the muscular endurance was significantly higher for parallel training group than series training group.
