Effect of progressive weight training on thigh girth
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of progressive weight training on thigh girth. Twenty men students studying in the Department of Physical Education and Sports Sciences, Annamalai University, Annamalai nagar, Tamil Nadu were randomly selected as subjects and their aged ranged from 18 to 24 years. The selected subjects were randomly assigned into two equal groups namely experimental (N: 10) which underwent progressive weight training for 8 weeks with 3 sessions per week and control (N: 10) which did not undergo any special training. Thigh girth was selected as criterion variable. The subjects were tested for thigh girth prior to and after training programme. The obtained data was statistically assessed for any significant difference using ANCOVA. The result showed a significant improvement in thigh girth (53.45 + 3.99 Vs 51.65 + 4.07, p < 0.05) between the experimental group and control group. On the basis of the findings, it was concluded that progressive weight training significantly improved thigh girth among male students.
