Effect of High Intensity Circuit Resistance Training on Selected Strength and Physiological Parameters


The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of high intensity circuit resistance training on selected strength and physiological parameters. To achieve the purpose of this study, thirty men students from Selvam College of Physical Education, Namakal, Tamil Nadu, India during the year 2011–12 were selected as subjects and their age ranged between 18 to 22 years. They were divided into two equal groups of fifteen subjects in each group, in which group-I underwent high intensity circuit resistance training and group-II acted as control group. The selected dependent variables such as back strength, muscular strength, vo2max, resting pulse rate and breathe holding time were tested by using standard tests and procedure. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to analyze the significant differences if any among groups for each dependent variable. The results showed that due to the effect of high intensity circuit resistance training the selected strength and physiological parameters have significantly altered.
