Effects of High Intensity Aerobic Interval Training Concurrent Low Intensity Aerobic and Resistance Interval Training on Physiological Variables of College Level Football Players

Abstract :

The purpose of the present study was to find out the effects of high intensity aerobic interval training, concurrent low intensity aerobic and resistance interval training on physiological variables of college level football players. To achieve the purpose of this study, forty five football players from Velammal Institutions, Chennai, Tamilnadu state, India were selected as subjects at random and their age ranged from 18 to 23 years. The subjects were divided into three groups consisting of 15 each. The experimental group I was treated with the high intensity aerobic interval training (HIAIT), experimental group II was treated with the concurrent low intensity aerobic and resistance interval training (CLIARIT) and group III as control group (CG). Vo2 max was assessed by Queen’s college step test and cardio respiratory endurance was measured by Cooper’s 12 minutes run. analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was computed because the subjects were selected random, but the groups were not equated in relation to the factors were examined. Whenever the adjusted post-test means were found significant, the scheffe’s post-hoc test was administered to find out the paired means difference. To test the obtained results on variables, level of significance 0.05 was chosen and considered as sufficient for the study. Both the high intensity aerobic interval training group and concurrent low intensity aerobic and resistance interval training group had shown significant difference in improvement on physiological variables of college level football players. The concurrent low intensity aerobic and resistance interval training group showed significant improvement on physiological variables than the other two groups.
