The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of resisted sprint training on speed, stride length and stride frequency among male sprinters. The resisted sprint training exercises included in this training programme was weighted vest, harness running and weighted sled. The response to resisted sprint training was characterized in thirty male sprinters in the age group of eighteen to twenty two years. The selected criterion variables were measured using standard tests and procedures.

The findings of the study indicate that speed, stride length, stride frequency and anaerobic power increased due to eight weeks of resisted sprint training. These results suggest that the resisted sprint training is an effective means of enhancing the sprinting ability, by bringing out significant changes in speed parameters.
