INFLUENCE OF HIGH AND LOW ALTITUDE BATTLE ROPE TRAINING PROTOCOL ON SELECTED PHYSIOLOGICAL VARIABLES AMONG NATIONAL LEVEL ATHLETES
Keywords:Battle rope, High altitude, Low altitude, Respiratory rate, Vital capacity
The intention of the study was to find out the influence of high and low altitude battle rope training protocol on selected physiological variables among national level athletes. To achieve this purpose of the study, forty five (N=45) National level athletes were randomly selected from various schools in Idukki and Ernakulam Districts, Kerala, India. The subjects were aged between 13 to 17. They were divided into three equal groups consist of 15 each, Group I underwent High altitude battle rope training group, Group II underwent Low altitude battle rope training group and Group III acted as Control group. The control group did not participate in any kind of special training programme apart from the daily physical activities as per the curriculum. In this study selected physiological tests were carried out on each student. These included respiratory rates were measured by using expirograph, Vital capacity assessed by web spirometer. The Battle rope training group participate training for 4 days in a week, one session per day and for 12 week each session lasted 60 minutes. All the subjects of the three groups were tested on selected dependent variable at prior and after the training programme. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to analyze the significant improvement. Whenever the obtained ‘f’ ratio for adjusted post-test means was considered to be significant, the scheffe’s test was applied, as a post hoc test to determine the paired mean differences. In all cases 0.05 level of confidence was fixed as the level of significance to test the ‘f’ ratio obtained by the analysis of covariance, the result of the study indicated that influence of high and low altitude battle rope training protocol on selected physiological variables among national level athletes.
