A Study of Circuit Resistance Training Effect on Leg Strength

Author(s) Name: Dr. S. Alagesan


The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of circuit resistance training on leg strength. To achieve this purpose of the study, thirty men students studying bachelor degree in the Department of Physical Education and Sports Sciences, Annamalai University, Annamalai Nagar, Tamil Nadu  were selected as subjects and they were divided into two equal groups of fifteen subjects each, such as circuit resistance training group and control group. The Group I underwent circuit resistance training programme for three days per week for twelve weeks and Group II acted as control which did not participate in any special training programme apart from the regular physical education activities as per the curriculum. The following criterion variable namely leg strength was selected as criterion variable and was tested by using leg lift with dynamometer. All the subjects of two groups were tested on selected dependent variables at prior to and immediately after the training programme. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to analyze the significant difference, if any, between the groups. The .05 level of confidence was fixed to find out the level of significance which was considered as an appropriate. The results of the study revealed that there was a significant difference between circuit resistance training group and control group on leg strength. And also the results of the study showed that there was a significant improvement on leg strength due to circuit resistance training.
