Correlations of Biomechanical Characteristics with Ball Speed in Penalty Corner Push-In Impact of Physical Exercises on Selected Physical Fitness Variables among Hockey Players
International Journal of Recent Research and Applied Studies
The purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of physical exercises on selected physical fitness variables among hockey players. It was hypothesized that there would have been a significant effect of physical exercises on selected physical fitness variables among hockey players. For the present study the subjects were 30 male hockey players from Thanjavur district, Tamilnadu were selected as subjects at random and their age ranged from 18 to 25 years. For the present study pre
... test randomized group design which consists of control group and experimental group was used. The subjects were randomly assigned to two equal groups of fifteen each and named as Group 'A' and Group 'B'. Group 'A' underwent physical exercises and Group 'B' underwent no training. The data was collected before and after twelve weeks of training. The data was analyzed by applying Analysis of Co-Variance (ANCOVA) technique to find out the effect of physical exercises on selected physical fitness variables among hockey players. The level of significance was set at 0.05. Significant effect of physical exercises was found on muscular strength and flexibility.
