Effect of Complex Training on Selected Physical Fitness Variables of Men Kabaddi Players

Abstract :

The purpose of this study was to find out the effect of complex training on selected physical fitness variables among college men kabaddi players. To achieve the purpose of the present study, thirty men Kabaddi players from Ganesar College of Arts & Science, Pudukkottai, Tamilnadu, India were selected as subjects at random and their ages ranged from 18 to 25 years. The study was formulated as a true random group design, consisting of a pre-test and post-test. The subjects (N=30) were randomly assigned to two equal groups of fifteen subjects each. Pre test was conducted for all the subjects on selected physical fitness variables. This initial test scores formed as pre test scores of the subjects. The groups were assigned as Experimental Group and Control Group in an equivalent manner. Experimental Group was exposed to complex training and Control Group underwent no training. The duration of experimental period was 12 weeks. After the experimental treatment, all the thirty subjects were tested on their selected endurance components. This final test scores formed as post test scores of the subjects. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to test the treatment effect of the training programmes on all the variables used in the study. In all cases 0.05 level of significance was fixed to test hypotheses. It was observed that the twelve weeks of complex training have significantly improved the selected physical fitness variables of kabaddi players.
