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.
