The purpose of the study was to find out the impact of weight training and circuit weight training on strength endurance and tidal volume. Forty five male students aged between 17 and 21 years were selected for the study. They were divided into three equal groups, each group consisting of fifteen subjects in which two experimental groups and one control group, in which the group I (n=15) underwent weight training, group II (n = 15) underwent circuit weight training for three days (alternative days) per week for twelve weeks, and group III (n=15) acted as control, which did not participate in any training. The subjects tested on selected criterion variables such as strength endurance and tidal volume at prior to and immediately after the training period. For testing the strength endurance, push-up test was used and to measure the tidal volume expirograph was used. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to find out the significant difference if any, between the experimental groups and control group on selected criterion variables separately. Since there were three groups involved in the present study, the Scheffé S test was used as post-hoc test. The selected criterion variables such as strength endurance and tidal volume were improved significantly for the training groups when compared with the control group. Moreover, there were no significant difference was occurred between the training groups on selected criterion variables.
