Mr. Jitender Kumar and Dr. Brij Kishore Prasad
The purpose of this study was to know the effect of isometric exercises on speed. Thirty (30) subjects were randomly selected comprising of both male and female athletes for isometric group(15) and control group(15) belonging to the age group of 22-28 years from College of Physical Education, Institute of Professional Studies, Gwalior and were divided into two equal groups, i.e. Isometric training group as experimental group and another as Control group. For the purpose of this study and to get valid conclusion, researcher has chosen one variable namely speed as dependent variable and isometric exercises as independent variable. To know the effect of isometric exercises on speed Random group Design was used and to analyze the both group (Isometric and control) “paired t test” was used at 0.05 level of significance. The Time of performance was recorded to the nearest 1/10 of a second. Finding of the study shows that there was no significant effect of isometric exercises on speed.
