Aerobic exercise is an important component in the development and maintenance of fitness. Aerobic fitness reduces the body fat and risk of disease and promotes weight loss. However, there is a controversy regarding the "optimal exercise" technique. In the past, most individuals have been taught to exercise aerobically at the constant percentage of their Heart Rate Reserve (HRR) or Maximal Oxygen intake (VO2 max). However, recent research suggests that Intermittent Training (IT) may offer some advantages when compared to the Continuous Training (CT) exercise. IT (Intermittent Training) features short bout of either Aerobic or Anaerobic exercise interspersed with short periods of rest. The purpose of the study was to find out the effects of aerobic, anaerobic and co-ordination training on selected skills in college level men field hockey players. To fulfill the purpose of the study, the male Hockey players from Adhiyamaan College of Engineering, Perumal Maniyammai Engineering College and M.G.R Arts & Science College were asked to assemble in a hall. The Researcher explained the proposed research work, nature of the study and subjects involved. All the players volunteered to serve as subjects out of which 80 eighty (N=80) hockey players were selected at random and their age ranged between 18 and 25 years. The subjects were segregated into four equal groups consist of 20 each by adopting random procedure. The researcher did not make any attempt to equate the groups. Three groups served as the experimental groups and one as control group. The experimental group - I underwent Aerobic training and the experimental group-II underwent anaerobic training and the experimental group-III underwent co-ordination training for the period of 12 weeks. At last, the control group did not undergo any training programme. The data was collected from the four groups on the selected variable criteria were analyzed with dependent t-test to find out the significant improvement if any, also used to analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was also used to find out the significant difference if any, among the experimental groups after the training programs. Since, four groups were compared whenever they obtained F-ratio for the adjusted post- test was found to be significant, the scheffe’s post-hoc test was used. The experimental groups namely, aerobic training group, anaerobic training group and co-ordination training group had significantly improved hockey skills, such as dribbling, hitting, pushing.
