Author(s): C Santhiya
The aim of the study was to find out the cardio respiratory endurance responses of continuous and interval training in College level football players. The study, forty-five men students studying master’s degree in the department of physical education and sports, Pondicherry central university, Puducherry, were selected as subject and they were divided into three equal groups of fifteen subjects each at random. Group I underwent continuous training and group II Interval training for three days per week for twelve weeks and group III acted as control who did not undergo and experimental training program apart from their regular physical education program of the curriculum. All the subjects of the three groups were tested on cardio respiratory endurance were tested through Cooper’s 12-minute run/walk test at prior and after the training programmed as pre and posttest respectively. Pre and post test was conducted before and after the twelve weeks, weekly five days- per day 60 minutes of experimental training. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to analyze the significant difference, if any among the three groups. The 0.05 level of significance was fixed to test the ‘F’ ratio obtained by the analysis of covariance, which was considered as an appropriate. The result of the study revealed that there was a significant difference among continuous training group, interval training group and control group on cardio respiratory endurance. It was found that there was a significant improvement on cardio respiratory endurance due to continuous training and interval training then the control group whereas the improvement was in favor of continuous training group.
