Effect of Aerobic Interval Training on Selected Physiological Variables among College Men players

Abstract :

The purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of aerobic interval training on physiological variables among college men players. To achieve the purpose of this study, thirty college men players from Periyar university college of Arts and science, Idappadi, Salem, Tamilnadu, India were randomly selected as subjects. As per the records, their age ranged from 18 to 27 years. Anaerobic power was assessed using Margaria Kalamen Anaerobic Power test and body composition was calculated using Body Mass Index. True randomized experimental group design has been employed with two groups, namely imagery group and control group with 15 subjects each. Group I participated their treatments for a period of twelve weeks and no training were given to the control group. The two groups were statistically analysed by using analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). The findings of the present study have strongly indicates that aerobic interval training of twelve weeks have significant effect on physiological variables i.e. anaerobic power and BMI of college men players. Hence the hypothesis earlier set that aerobic interval training programme would have been significant effect on physiological variables in light of the same the hypothesis was accepted.
