Abstract


The purpose of the study was to find out the influence of isolated and combined circuit and fartlek trainings on selected endurance parameters among college men students. To achieve the purpose of the study, 45 college men were selected studying Bachelor of Law in the Central Law College, Salem, Tamil Nadu, India. The age of the subjects ranged between 19 and 25 years. The selected subjects were divided into three experimental groups namely circuit training group, fartlek training group and combined training (circuit and fartlek training) group with fifteen subjects in (n=15) each. The duration of the training period will be restricted to twelve weeks and the number of sessions per week is confined to three. This initial test scores formed as pre test scores of the subjects. After the experimentation, all the forty five subjects were tested on their endurance parameters. This final test scores formed as post test scores of the subjects. The pre test and post test scores were subjected to statistical analysis using dependant ‘t’ test and Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) to find out the significance among the mean differences, whenever the ‘F’ ratio for adjusted test was found to be significant, Scheffe’s post hoc test was used. In all cases 0.05 level of significance was fixed to test hypotheses. The result reveals that there was a significant improvement in the experimental groups on selected endurance parameters when compared among the experimental groups. The combined circuit and fartlek training group has showed the better improvement in speed endurance and muscular endurance as well as the fartlek training group in the cardio respiratory endurance than the other training groups.
