To achieve the purpose of the study men basketball players were selected from various clubs, Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India. The subject’s age ranges from 18 to 25 years. The selected subjects were divided into two equal groups consists of 15 basketball men each namely experimental group and control group. The experimental group underwent a specific basketball skill training and pranayama package programme for twelve weeks. The control group was not taking part in any training during the course of the study. Systolic blood pressure was taken as criterion variable in this study. The selected subjects were tested on Systolic blood pressure was measured through sphygmomanometer. Pre-test was taken before the training period and post- test was measured immediately after the twelve-week training period. Statistical technique‘t’ ratio was used to analyze the means of the pre-test and posttest data of experimental group and control group. The results revealed that there was a significant difference found on the criterion variable. The difference is found due to specific basketball skill training and pranayama package given to the experimental group on Systolic blood pressure when compared to control group.</p> 2021-11-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Senthil Kumaran S Volleyball Players Stress Level Output in Response to Asanas and Meditation 2021-11-20T16:37:12+00:00 Senthilkumar A <p>The purpose of the study was to effect of asanas and meditation on stress level of volleyball players of Karpagam University, Coimbatore, Tamilnadu were constituted the population of the study. For this study 30 male volleyball players were selected constituted the population of the study were randomly selected as a subject and their age ranged between 18 to 25 years. They were divided group into two equal groups namely Experimental group (n=15) and Control group (n=15) Perceived Stress scale Questionnairefor the analysis of results the level of significance to test t-ratio was set at 0.05 level of confidence for this study. The collected data on Stress was analysed by computing mean and standard deviation. The collected data were analysed statistically by ‘t’ test from the analysis of data proved that there is significant difference between Experimental group and Control group. The study has painted the requirements of the college level male volleyball players to need exact and suitable evidence approximately mental health to survive.</p> 2021-11-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Dr. A. Senthilkumar Effect of Cardiac Circuit Training on Physical Fitness Variables of High School Kho-Kho Players 2021-11-20T16:53:53+00:00 Udhayakumar P Murugavel K <p>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.</p> 2021-11-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Udhayakumar P, Dr.K.Murugavel Athlete’s Leg Strength and Muscular Strength Output in Response to Kettlebell Training 2021-11-20T16:48:23+00:00 Arivazhagan R <p>The main principle of this study was to discover the athlete’s leg strength and muscular strength output in response to kettlebell training. To accomplish this purpose of the study thirty college level men athletes from Agricultural College and Research institute, Eachangkottai, Thanjavur, Tamilnadu, India were randomly selected as subjects. Their age ranged in between 18 and 25 years. The subjects were separated into two groups namely kettlebell group and control group. The kettlebell group was subjected to kettlebell training (for weekly three days monday, wednesday, friday) at evening session for six weeks. Leg strength and muscular strength was selected as dependent variable. After the compilation of proper data, it was statistically analyzed by using paired‘t’ test. The level of significance was set at 0.05. The result of the current study showed that the kettlebell training has significant development on leg strength and muscular strength of athletes.</p> 2021-11-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Dr. R. Arivazhagan Impacts of Asanas and Pranayama on Flexibility and Vital Capacity among Cricketers 2021-11-20T16:41:02+00:00 Mahesh P <p>This examine evaluated the Effects of Asanas and Pranayama on Flexibility and Vital Capacity. The current research was conducted at the V.C.V. Shishu Vidyodaya Matric. Hr. Sec. School, Coimbatore, Tamilnadu. The age of the subjects were ranged between 13 to 16 years. The subjects active were randomly assigned to two equal groups. Group - I (n=20) underwent yogic training group and Group - II (n=20) control group. Tools and Technique i.e. flexibility and vital capacity were used and measured in this study to know the effects of asanas and pranayama on its. Measurements for the variables were taken at the pre test and at the end of the treatment period, after eight weeks post test the data were collected for all the variables from treatment group, for three days. During this period the subject were not allowed to participate in any training. The information was analyzed using paired‘t’ test to compare the before and after yogic training programme values of treatment group. P value of less than 0.05 was accepted as indicating significant difference between the compared values. The results of this investigation indicate that eight weeks of asanas and pranayama practice can significantly improve flexibility and vital capacity in school level cricketers</p> 2021-11-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Mahesh P Effects of Functional High Intensity Interval Training Circuit on Peak Oxygen Consumption in Sedentary College Men 2021-11-15T07:25:59+00:00 Balaji E <p>The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of six weeks of functional high intensity interval training circuit on peak oxygen of sedentary men.&nbsp; Thirty college sedentary men students were randomly selected from Coimbatore district. Their age ranged between 18 and 25 years. The subjects were divided into two equal groups consisting of fifteen each. Treatment group I (n = 15) underwent high intensity interval circuit training (HIITCG) for a period of 6 weeks and group II (n = 15) acted as control group (CG). Data obtained were evaluated in SPSS package. The t value revealed that the peak oxygen consumption was significantly improved due to the effect of high intensity interval training circuit. As a result, six weeks of HIIT can be said to increase the peak oxygen consumption in sedentary college men.</p> 2021-11-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Balaji E Strength Endurance and Agility to the Persuade of Complex Training on Hockey Players 2021-11-20T16:50:51+00:00 Sivanesa Selvaraj Pandian T <p>The rationale of the study was to find out the result of complex training on selected physical fitness variables along with hockey players. To achieve this purpose, thirty men hockey players were selected as subjects, their aged between 18 to 25 years, they are studying in the National Engineering College, Lakshmi Ammal Sports Academy, KR nagar, Kovilpatti, Thoothukudi District, Tamilnadu. The selected subjects were divided into two equal groups of fifteen subjects each, namely Complex training group and control group. The complex training group trained for three sets per exercise per session at 60 to 80% with a progressive increase in load with the number of weeks. Strength endurance and agility were selected as criterion variables and they were tested by using sit-ups and shuttle run respectively. ANCOVA was used to find out the significant difference if any between the groups. The results of the study showed that there was a significant difference on strength endurance and agility between complex training group and control group.</p> 2021-11-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Sivanesa Selvaraj Pandian T
