Abstract

The purpose of present study was to find out the effect of circuit training on selected motor abilities among university male students. For the purpose of the study total 60 boys, age ranged from 18 to 28 years were selected as subjects from the Department of Physical Education (T), Punjabi university University, patiala, Punjab (India). The subjects were purposively divided into two groups: Group-A: Experimental (N1=30) and Group-B: Control (N2=30). All the subjects were informed about the aim and methodology of the study. The subjects from Group-A were subjected to 8-week of Circuit Training Program. Group-B acted as control who did not participate any special training apart from the regular curricular activities. The training program starts with warm up exercises for 10 minutes (jogging, slow space running, stretching exercises etc.), then Sit ups (lower abdominals), pushups, Squat jumps, Compass jumps, Astride jumps, Shuttle runs were selected for the main training schedule. Volume and intensity: Experimental group performed 20 to 30seconds work on each exercise with a 20 to 30 seconds recovery. They performed 2 to 4 sets with a 2 to 3 minutes recovery between each set. T-test was used to find out the statistical significances of each age groups pre and post mean differences. The level of significance was set at p<0.05 level of confidence. The results of the study stated that the Circuit Training had significantly improved the speed, leg power, arm power and agility of the subjects.
