Author(s): Dr. S Jayakumar and Dr. C Lakshmanan
Abstract:
Resistance training is a form of physical activity that is designed to improve muscular fitness by exercising a muscle or a muscle group against external resistance. Research shows that resistance training, whether done via body weight, resistance bands or machines, dumbbells or free weights, not only helps us build strength, but also improves muscle size and can help counteract age-related muscle loss. More recently it's become popular among those looking to lose weight. The purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of resistance training on selected physical fitness variables among inter collegiate kabaddi players. Forty out of kabaddi players were randomly selected from Bharathidasan university, Trichy district, the selected players were divided into two groups consisting of 20 inter collegiate kabaddi players. No attempt was made equate the groups. The age of the subjects ranged between 18 to 21 years. The influence of the resistance training was assessed on physical fitness. The training load was increased from the maximum working capacity of the subject doing pilot study. The duration of the training period was restricted to eight weeks and the number of sessions per week was confined to three. The data obtained from all the groups before and after the experimental period were statistically analyzed by dependent‘t’ test to find out the significant improvement if any, 0.05 level of confidence was fixed to the level of significance between pre and post test means of all groups.
