SAQ and sprint interval training for any sport is vital to the overall success of a player. With a good foundation to build on, players fully prepared to move into building maximal speed. The purpose of the study was to investigate the relative effect of SAQ training verses sprint interval training on anaerobic power of male sprinters. To achieve the purpose of the study, forty five male inter-collegiate level sprinters from various colleges affiliated to Bharathidhasan University, Trichirapalli, Tamil Nadu, India were selected as subjects. Their age ranged from 18 years to 23 years. The selected subjects were randomly assigned into three equal groups of 15 subjects each. Group-I underwent SAQ training, group-II underwent sprint interval training and group-III acted as control. The selected dependent variable anaerobic power was assessed before and after 12 weeks of training. In order to nullify the initial mean differences the data collected from the three groups prior to and post experimentation on anaerobic power was statistically analyzed to find out the significant difference if any, by applying the analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). Since, three groups are involved, whenever the obtained ‘F’ ratio value in the adjusted post test mean was found to be significant, the Scheffe’s test was applied as post hoc test to determine the paired mean differences, if any. The result of the study reveals that due to the effect of SAQ training and sprint interval training the anaerobic power of the subjects was significantly improved. It was also concluded that sprint interval training was significantly better than SAQ training in improving the anaerobic power of male sprinters.
