The subjects were randomly assigned of 15 each. underwent diverse intensity resistance training and control group, To examine the effect of diverse intensity resistance training on leg strength and thigh girth, analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was computed. In determining the level of significance 0.05 was fixed. The finding of the study shows that significant difference existed between control and experimental groups on leg strength and thigh girth.
