Background: The aim of this study was to determine the effect of strength Training on physical fitness variables of intercollegiate volleyball players. Methods: The subject was selected thirty intercollegiate volleyball players from three difference college’s level volleyball players from Salem district, Tamilnadu. Subject’s age ranged from 18 to 24. Totally (N = 30) were randomly assigned to two equal groups of intercollegiate volleyball players. The groups were named as Strength Training group and control group. Upper Extremity Strength was measured by bench press and Lower Extremity Strength was measured by Half Squat. The training group had undergone the training for a period of eight weeks and the post-tests were conducted after the training period. Results: Hence the difference between means of the two groups in the pre-test had to be taken into account after the analysis of the post-test differences between the means. Paired ‘t’ was applied, to test the obtained results on variables, level of significance 0.05 was chosen and considered as sufficient for the study. This Strength Training group had significant difference on Upper Extremity Strength and Lower Extremity Strength of intercollegiate volleyball players.
