Author(s): Dr. Ajit Singh and Jaswant Singh
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of wobble board and swiss ball training on the variable of abdominal strength among school students. A random group design was adopted for the study. Forty-five (N=45) student from seventh and eighth standard were selected as subjects on random basis and their age ranging between 13 to 14 years. The students were selected from the Government Model Senior Secondary School Sector-56, Chandigarh. Pre-test was conducted on the motor fitness variable of abdominal strength. An Experimental Group-I was exposed to wobble board training, where as the other experimental group-II was exposed to Swiss ball training, control group was not exposed to do any specific training other than their daily routine activities. The training was given for six days a week for duration of twelve weeks. The Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) technique was used to test the adjusted post-test mean difference among school students on the variable of abdominal strength. After the twelve weeks, ANCOVA indicated that there was a positive effect of training on abdominal strength and the P-value (Sig.).00 was found lesser than.05 level of significant (P< 0.05). The result reveled that a significant differences have been observed among school students of different groups namely; wobble board, swiss ball and control group on the variable of abdominal strength.
