Effect of Interval training on Selected Strength Parameters among Badminton Players

Abstract :

The purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of interval training on strength parameters among shuttle badminton players. To achieve the purpose of this study, thirty shuttle badminton players from Trivendrum, Kerala, India were randomly selected as subjects. As per the records, their age ranged from 18 to 25 years. The investigator selected the following variables for the present investigation. True randomized experimental group design has been employed with two groups, namely interval training 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. Strength endurance was assessed by 30 second endurance jump and explosive strength was assessed by standing broad jump. The two groups were statistically analysed by using analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). The result of the study reveals that there was a significant improvement in the experimental group on selected variables when compared to the control group after the completion of twelve weeks of interval training.
