Abstract

The aim of the study was to investigate the realize the effect of bear walk and frog jumps on selected strength parameter Muscular strength and Flexibility underwent school boys students in the age group of 13 to 16 on health related physical fitness. To attain this purpose, 30 male school students were randomly selected as subjects from C.M.S. Higher Secondary School, Srivilliputtur, Virudhunagar District studying in various classes. The age of the subjects were ranged from 13 to 16 years. The subjects were formed a two group of 15 subjects each, in which group - I underwent Bear walk training and frog jump training for three days per week for eight weeks and group - II acted as control group who were not undergo any type of training programme. The chosen criterion variables such as Muscular Strength and Flexibility were measured before and after the training period. The collected data were statistically analyzed by using Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA). From the obtained results the study was found that there was a significant improvement on Muscular Strength and Flexibility for bear walk and frog jump group when compared with the control group.
