Abstract
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of weight training, endurance training and combination training on selected physical fitness variables. Sixty women players of different games were divided into four equal groups (n = 15), in which group - I underwent weight training, group - II underwent endurance training and group - III underwent the combination training for 3 days per week for 12 weeks, and group IV acted as control which did not participate any special training. The subjects were tested on selected criterion variables such as back strength, muscular endurance and cardio-respiratory endurance at prior to and immediately after the training. For testing the back strength, the dynamometer was used, bent knee sit-up test was administered to test muscular endurance and for cardio-respiratory endurance the Cooper’s 12 minutes run/walk test was administered. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used as statistical tool and since four groups were involved in the present study, the Scheffé S test used as post-hoc test. The selected criterion variables were improved significantly for all the training groups when compared with the control group and the back and muscular endurance were improved significantly for weight training group and the endurance training group has improved their cardio-respiratory endurance significantly.
