The purpose of the study was to find out the effects of aerobic training preceded with proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation on selected motor ability variables oninter-collegiate women basketball players. To achieve the purpose of the study, sixty women basketball players were selected randomly from affiliated college for Bharathiar University, Coimbatore. The subjects aged from 18 to 25 years. The selected subjects were divided into two equal groups namely experimental-I and control groups of 30 subjects each. The training period was limited to twelve weeks and for six days per week. The aerobic training preceded with proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation was selected as independent variables and flexibility, muscular strength endurance, arm explosive power, leg explosive power and cardio –respiratory endurance were selected as dependent variables and it was measured by sit and reach, sit-ups, medicine ball throw, stand broad jump, and 12 min run /walk test. All the subjects were tested two days before and immediately after the experimental period on the selected dependent variables. The obtained data from the experimental group and control group before and after the experimental period were statistically analyzed with dependent ‘t’-test to find out significant improvements. The level of significance was fixed at 0.05 level confidence for all the cases. Significant improvement was found on flexibility, muscular strength endurance, arm explosive power, leg explosive power and cardio –respiratory endurance of experimental group due to the effects of aerobic training preceded with proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation when compared to the control group.
