Effect Of Circuit Training and Plyometric Training on Selected Physiological Variables Among University Level Men Handball Players


  • Dr.D.J.Asath Ali Khan, Mr.Mohammed Rashid.P


The Aim Of This Study Was To Finding Out The Effect Of Circuit Training And Plyometric Training On Resting Pulse Rate And Vital Capacity Among University Level Men Handball Players. To Achieve The Purpose Of The Study (N=45) University Level Men Handball Players Were Selected As Subject At Random From The Kerala, India. The Age Ranged Of The Subject Is Between 18 To 25 Years. The Subject Was Divided Into Three Group Namely Experimental Group I, Experimental Group Ii, And Control Group Iii. Experimental Group I Underwent To Circuit Training, Experimental Group Ii Underwent To Plyometric Training And Group Iii Act As A Control Group They Did Not Participate In Any Of The Training Programme Other Than Their Regular Activates. The Following Physiological Variables Were Assessed By Using Standard Test. Resting Pulse Rate Measured By Digital Heart Rate Measuring Machine,   Model No. Ew 243 Unit Of Measurement Beats Per Minute, Vital Capacity Measured By Spirometer Unit Of Measurement Millilitres. The Data Was Collected From Three Groups’ Pre And Post Of The Experimental Period. The Raw Data On Resting Pulse Rate And Vital Capacity Was Statistically Analyzed By Using Analysis Of Covariance (Ancova). Scheffe’s Post Hoc Test Was Applied To Determine The Significant Differences Between The Paired Adjusted Means. In All The Cases 0.05 Level Of Significance Was Fixed. The Result Of The Study Showed That There Was As Significantly Improvement Was Found In Resting Pulse Rate And Vital Capacity Among The Experimental Group When Compared With Control Group.
