The objectives of the study were to know the Effect of Harness training on Vital Capacity and Heart Rate of Kho-Kho Players. Forty (40) male Kho-Kho Players were selected from various clubs or mandals of Amravati, who has at least participated in state level or inter collegiate level tournaments. Subjects were selected with purposive random sampling methods. The age of the subjects were ranged between 20 to 28 years. Subjects did not use any ergogenic aids or supplementations and also they were all free from any injuries during the collection of data. They were randomly assigned into two groups i.e. Experimental Group & Control Group. Experimental group has gone through six weeks (3 days a week) of Harness training program. Control Group has gone through their regular training program. Vital Capacity was measured by using the equipment of Peak Flow Meter. Heart Rate was taken manually. To see the effects of Harness training, on Vital Capacity and Heart Rate of kho-kho players ‘t’ test was applied by the researcher, level of significance was kept 0.05 at 38df. Result shows that on the basis of mean difference there was difference between the means of pre and post test of control and experimental group of kho kho players in reference to vital capacity and heart rate. To see this difference is significant or not at 0.05 level of significance. Researcher further calculated ‘t’ test & above table shows that there is significant difference between pre and post test of experimental group of kho-kho players in both the parameters as the calculated ‘t’ value 3.778 and 2.999 was greater than tabulated ‘t’ value 2.024. But there is insignificant found between pre and post test of control group of kho-kho players in both the parameters, as the calculated ‘t’ value 1.913 and 0.907 is lesser than the tabulated ‘t’ value 2.024. That significant may be attributed that because exercise strengthens the heart muscle. It allows it to pump a greater amount of blood with each heartbeat. More oxygen is also going to the muscles. This means the heart beats fewer times per minute than it would in a nonathlete. However, an athlete’s heart rate may go up to 180 bpm to 200 bpm during exercise.
