Abstract

The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of high intensity interval training (HIIT) on selected physical fitness variables namely Speed and Explosive Power among University men students. To achieve this purpose of the study, 30 men students were selected from Department of Physical Education, Annamalai University, Annamalai nagar, Cuddalore district, Tamilnadu, India as subjects. The age of subjects were ranged from 18 to 23years.The selected subjects were divided into two equal groups of fifteen subjects each, such as High intensity interval training group (Group-I) and control group(Group-II).The High intensity interval training group (Group-I) underwent training programme for 5 days per week for 12 weeks. Group II acted as control in which they did not undergo any special training programme apart from regular activities. All the subjects of two groups were tested on selected physical fitness variables such as Speed and Explosive power by using 50 meter’s run and  Vertical jump 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 level of significant to test the “F” ratio obtained by the analysis of covariance was tested at .05 level of confidence, which was considered as an appropriate. The results of the study revealed that there was a significant difference between High intensity interval training group and control group on selected physical fitness variables such as Speed and Explosive power. The significant changes on selected criterion variables were also noticed due to High intensity interval training.
