Author(s): Bhawani Pratap Singh Shekhawat and GS Chauhan
The purpose of the study was to ascertain the effect of circuit training on Pull-ups (arm and shoulder girdle strength), Bent-knee sit-ups (abdominal strength) and Standing broad-jump (legs explosive strength) of adolescent male Basketball Players. The subjects for the study were 30 male students who were in the age range of 15 to 18 years. The duration of the experimental period was twelve weeks. A 10 stations circuit was developed by the research scholar and the subjects trained thrice a week. The adaptation period of two weeks was adopted. After every two weeks the number of circuits was increased. Analysis of data was done employing t-test. The t-ratios obtained were 7.24 for pull-ups, 2.88 for bent-knee sit-ups and 3.8 for standing broad jump. All the t-ratios were found to be significant at 0.05 level of confidence with 29 degrees of freedom.
