Abstract
The purpose of this study was to investigate the Impact of Battle rope and Bulgarian bag high intensity interval training protocol on selected strength and physiological variables among school level athletes. It was hypothesized that there would be a significant impact of Battle rope and Bulgarian bag high intensity interval training protocol on selected strength and physiological variables among school level athletes. For the present study, 45 male athletes from various schools of Idukki District from Kerala were selected as subjects at random and their age ranged from 13 to 17 years. They were divided into three equal groups consist of 15 each, group I underwent Battle rope training, group II underwent Bulgarian bag training. The Battle rope and Bulgarian bag training group participated in the training for 5 days in a week, one session per day and for 8 weeks each session lasted 90 minutes. Group III acted as control group. The control group did not participate in any special training programme apart from the regular physical activities as per the curriculum. In this study selected strength and physiological tests were carried out on each students. These included Grip strength assessed by Handgrip dynamometer and Vital capacity assessed by web spirometer. All the subjects of the three groups were tested on selected dependent variable at prior and immediately after the training programme. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to analyze the significant difference, if any among the adjusted post-test means of experimental and control group on each variable separately. Whenever the obtained ‘f’ ratio for adjusted post-test means was to found to be significant, the scheffe’s test was applied, as a post hoc test to determine the paired mean differences. In all cases 0.05 level of confidence was fixed as the level of significance to test the ‘f’ ratio obtained by the analysis of covariance, the result of the study indicated that Battle rope and Bulgarian bag training can be used to enhance Grip strength and Vital capacity among school level athletes.
