Effect of aerobic training on selected physical fitness variables among intercollegiate kabaddi players
Author(s): Dr. I Karikalan
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect Aerobic training on selected physical fitness variables among inter collegiate kabaddi players. Thirty inter collegiate kabaddi players studying from St. John’s College of Physical Education, Veeravanallur were selected randomly as subjects. The age of the subjects ranged from 19 to 28 years. The selected subjects were divided into two groups. Group I underwent Aerobic training and Group II acted as control. The experimental group (aerobic training) was subjected to the aerobic training for five days a week up to six weeks. The aerobic training was selected as independent variable and the criterion variables cardiovascular endurance and muscular endurance were selected as dependent variables and the selected dependent variables were assessed by the standardized test items. Cardiovascular endurance was assessed by 12 min cooper’s run/walk test and the unit of measurement in meters, and muscular endurance was assessed by bent knee sit ups test and the unit of measurement in numbers. The experimental design selected for this study was pre and post test randomized design. The data were collected from each subject before and after the training period and statistically analyzed by using dependent‘t’ test and analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). It was found that there was a significant improvement and significant different exist due to the effect of aerobic training on cardiovascular endurance and muscular endurance.
