Shabir Kumar Anant and Dr. Reeta Venugopal
The purpose of the study was to examine the effect of eight week swiss ball training on core muscle of male players. Fifty Five (30=experimental group & 25= Control group) male players were selected as subjects. All were the players of Inter-University level. In the study swiss ball training was considered as independent variable and core muscles was considered as dependent variable. Core muscles strength was measured by WKC/USA standardized protocol for fitness assessment test. In order to find out the effect of eight week swiss ball training on core muscle, Descriptive Statistic, and Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was used. The level of significance was set at 0.05. Based on the findings and within the limitation of the study it is noticed that practice of selected swiss ball training helped to improve core muscles of Male players. While comparing pre and post test mean score following conclusion were drawn. Core muscles of the subject of experiment group was found to be statistically significant since the obtained “F” value 102.241 was found higher than the tabulated value 4.00 at 0.05 level of significance. The result reveals that there was significant (p<.05) effect of swiss ball training on core muscles strength of male players, Core muscles significantly improved after the training program in subjects of experimental group.
