Strength parameters response to the influence of isometric strength training on school level handball players
This study investigated the strength parameters response to the influence of isometric strength training on school level handball players. To achieve the purpose of the study 40 school level women handball players were selected from GKD higher secondary school, Coimbatore. The subjects was randomly assigned to two equal groups (n=20). Group- I underwent isometric strength training (ISTG) and group - II was acted as control group (CG). The isometric strength training was given to the experimental group for 3 days per week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) for the period of twelve weeks. The control group was not given any sort of training except their routine work. The strength parameters of arm explosive power (medicine ball throw), leg explosive power (standing broad jump) and maximum strength (sit-ups) were measured before and after training period. The data collected from the subjects was statistically analyzed with‘t’ rest to find out significant improvement if any at 0.05 level of confidence. The result of the arm explosive power, leg explosive power and maximum strength speculated significant improvement due to influence of isometric strength training with the limitations of (diet, climate, life style) status and previous training. The result of the present study coincide findings of the investigation done by different experts in the field of sports sciences. Influence of isometric strength training significantly improved arm explosive power, leg explosive power and maximum strength of school level handball players.
