The purpose of the study is to find out the Effects of combination of Sprint Training and Circuit Training on the development of Agility and Flexibility of the Inter Collegiate Level Male Athletes. Sixty athletes from the various colleges in Karnataka are selected as subjects and their age ranged from 18 to 22 years. The subjects are divided into three equal groups. The first group undergoes Sprint Training (n=20), the second group undergoes Circuit Training alone (n=20) and the third group act as the Control Group. They do not practice any specific training. The selected variables are assessed by agility (Illinois agility test) and flexibility (sit and reach test) conducted before and after the 12 weeks of training regimen. The data are analyzed by t test, co-variance and it is significant so the scheffee’s post hoc test is applied. The sprint training group shows significantly greater improvement in the agility and flexibility than the other two groups of the circuit training group and the control group.
