Efficacy of functional core training and slide board training on selected range of motion parameters among young active men
Author(s): Dr. PK Senthilkumar
Abstract:
The objective of this study was to examine the efficacy of functional core training and slide board training on selected range of motion parameters among young active men. To achieve the purpose of the study forty five active men were randomly assigned into experimental group I (n=15), experimental group II (n=15) and control group (n= 15) and their age ranged between 20 and 25 years. The experimental groups underwent functional core training and slide board training for three sessions per week in 12 weeks. The subject’s Range of motion parameters such as knee flexion and hip flexion was measured by Goniometer. The pre and post test data of both the groups were collected and statistically examined by applying analysis of covariance. Results of the study show that the range of motion of knee flexion and hip flexion significantly improved (P<0.05) in experimental group compared with the control one. In contrast, control subjects did not show any significant alteration in these parameters and also there was no significant difference between the treatment groups. The functional core training and slide board training programme may be recommended to improve the range of motion of knee flexion and hip flexion and it may contribute to enhance range of motion level young active men.
