Abstract

The purpose of the study was designed to find out the effect of cardiac circuit training on physical fitness variables of high school kho-kho players. To achieve this purpose of study 30 high school male kho-kho players were selected from T.N.G.R Hr. Sec. School Coimbatore. The subjects were randomly assigned to two equal groups (n=15). Group - I underwent (CCT) group (CCTG) and group - II was acted as a control group (CG). The cardiac circuit training was given to the experimental group for 3 days per week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) for the period of eight weeks. The control group was not given any sort of training except their routine work. Speed (50 mts dash) agility (shuttle run 4*10) and muscular strength and endurance (modified sit-ups) were measured. Before and after the training period the data collected from the subjects was statistically analyzed with ‘t’ rest to find out significant improvement if any at a 0.05 level of confidence. The result of the speed, agility, and muscular strength, and endurance speculated significant improvement due to influence of cardiac circuit training with the limitations of (diet, climate, lifestyle) status and previous training.
