Impact of sports loading programme on selected strength and power parameters of handball
The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of effect of eight weeks of supervised Sports Loading Programme on enhancing the quality of performance in selected strength and power parameters such as leg strength, muscular strength, explosive power and anaerobic power of handball players. For this purpose 30 handball players, aged 18 to 22 years took part in the study. Subjects were randomly assigned to either Sports Loading Programme (n=15) or control (n=15) group. The training regimen lasted for eight weeks. The selected criterion variables were assessed using standard tests and procedures, before and after the training regimen. Analysis of covariance was used to determine the significant difference existing between pretest and posttest on selected criterion variables. The analysis of data revealed that eight weeks of Sports Loading Programme had an impact of 10.63% on leg strength, 13.91% on muscular strength, 25.57% on explosive power, 6.19% on anaerobic power. These results suggest that Sports Loading Programme has the significant influence on improving selected criterion variables.
