Purpose: The Purpose of the study was to find out the comparative effect of static and dynamic core exercise training on back and leg strength.
Selection of Subjects: For the present study 45 male students from Department of Physical Education, Guru Ghasidas Vishwavidyalaya, Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh were selected randomly as the subjects for the study. The age of the subjects were ranged between 20-25 years.
Selection of Variables: The variables selected for the present study were static and dynamic core exercise training as independent variable, back and leg strength as dependent variable.
Methodology: For the study pre-test – post-test randomized group design, which consists of control group (15 students) and two experimental group’s i.e. static and dynamic core exercise group (30 students) were used. The data were collected through the pre-test, before training and post-test, after twelve weeks of static and dynamic core exercise training.
Statistical Technique: To find out the comparative effect of static and dynamic core exercise training on vital capacity of the subjects the pretest and post-test scores were analyzed by using Descriptive analysis, Analysis of Co-Variance (ANCOVA) and LSD test were used, the data analyzed with the help of SPSS (21.0 version) software and the level of significance was set at 0.05 level of confidence.
Result: The result of the study showed that there was significant difference between pre and post-test (experimental group) of back strength. Significant difference was found between adjusted means of dynamic core exercise training and control group (p< 0.05). There was insignificant difference between pre and post-test (experimental group) of Leg strength
Conclusion: It can be concluded that both the training methods were useful to develop back strength but the static core exercise training could be very much useful method.
