Abstract
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of strength training, endurance training and their combination on leg strength, muscular strength and resting pulse rate. Sixty male students aged between 17 and 22 years were selected for the study. They were divided into four equal groups, each group consisting of fifteen subjects in which three experimental groups and one control group, in which the group I (n=15) underwent strength training, group II (n = 15) underwent endurance training and group III (n = 15) underwent the combination training for three days (alternative days) per week for twelve weeks, and group IV (n=15) acted as control, which did not participate in any training. The subjects were tested on selected criterion variables such as leg strength, muscular strength and resting pulse rate at prior to and immediately after the training period. For testing the leg strength, the dynamometer was used and to test the muscular strength, bent knee sit-ups was administered, to measure resting pulse rate, counting the pulse per minute during the resting condition. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to find out the significant difference if any, between the experimental groups and control group on selected criterion variables separately. Since there were four groups involved in the present study, the Scheffé S test was used as post-hoc test. The selected criterion variables such as leg strength, muscular strength and resting pulse rate were improved significantly for all the training groups when compared with the control group and the leg and muscular strength were improved significantly for strength training group and the endurance training group has improved resting pulse rate significantly.
