Effect of Continuous Running on Selected Cardio Respiratory Endurance of College Men Students

Abstract :

The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of continuous running on cardio respiratory endurance of college men students. To achieve this purpose of the study, thirty men students in the department of physical education and sports and sciences, Annamalai University were selected as subjects at random. Their age ranged between the 18 to 25years. The selected subjects were divided in two equal groups fifteen each namely continuous running group and control group. Group I underwent for five continuous running days per week for twelve weeks, whereas Group II acted as the control group who maintained their daily routine activities and no special training was given to them. The following variable namely cardio respiratory endurance was selected as criterion variable. The subjects of the groups was tested on cardio respiratory endurance by using cooper’s 12 minutes run/walk test at prior and immediately after the training period. The collected data were analyzed statistically through analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) to find out the significant differences, if any between the groups. The .05 level of confidence was fixed to test the level of significance, which was considered as an appropriate .The results of study showed that there was a significant difference exist between continuous running group and control group on cardio respiratory endurance. And also there was a significant improvement on cardio respiratory endurance due to continuous running.
