Impact of hill running on speed endurance performance among elite soccer players
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of hill running on selected variable speed endurance among elite soccer players. To achieve the purpose of the study, 24 elite soccer players participating in the inter university tournaments from Animalia University, Chidambaram, Tamilnadu. Were selected at randomly. The age of the subjects ranged from 18 - 25 years. The selected subjects were divided into two equal groups. Group I underwent hill running for three days per week over a period of twelve weeks and Group II acted as control group. Speed Endurance (150m run test) was selected as dependent variables. The pretest and posttest randomized control group design was used as experimental design. Pretest data was collected before the training programme and post-test was collected immediately after the training session. The collected data were statistically analyzed through analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). In all the cases 0.05 level of confidence was fixed to test the hypothesis. The result of the study reveals that there was significant improvement on selected dependent variable due to the effect of hill training and there was a significant difference between experimental and control groups of high school elite soccer players.
