Abstract

The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of Ladder Training on selected physical and physiological variables such as speed, explosive power and Resting pulse rate of college men students studying various Arts & Science Colleges affiliated to Madurai Kamaraj University, Madurai District, Tamil Nadu, India were randomly selected as subjects. Thirty men students were selected as subject. The subject’s age were ranged from 18 to 23 years. The selected subjects were divided into two equal groups of thirty subjects each at randomly, which were one experimental groups and a control group. Experimental Group underwent the Ladder Training programme. The training period of an experimental group was six weeks. Control group did not undergo any training programme rather than their routine work. The data were collected on physical fitness variables namely speed, explosive power, physiological variables namely Resting Pulse rate for all the two groups before the experimental period ( Pre-test), after six weeks of training period (Post -test) respectively. In order to test the effect of training, the collected data from all the two groups before, during and after experimentation on Physical, Physiological variables were statistically analyzed by using one-way factorial analysis of variance with last factor repeated measures. When the obtained ‘T’ ratio value in the simple effect is found significant, to determine which of the paired mean had significant differences. In all the cases the level of confidence is fixed at 0.05 to test the significance. The result of the study also revealed that there significantly improved in the speed, Explosive power and Resting Pulse rate were significantly reduced due to Ladder Training among college men students after effect of Ladder Training on selected physical and physiological variables among College men students.
