Sani Kumar Verma and Dr. Indu Mazumdar
The purpose of the study was to determine the effect of weight training programme on selected physical variables i.e. legs strength, arms strength, and abdomen strength. Total 30 male undergraduate students of Department of Physical Education, Institute of Professional Studies Gwalior Madhya Pradesh were taken as subjects. The study was confined to the following physical variables. i.e., legs strength, abdominal strength and arms strength. Explosive leg strength was measured by standing broad jump and was recorded to the nearest of a centimeters. Arms strength was measured by Arm strength index was computed by the application of Roger’s formula. pull-ups and push-ups and was recorded in the numbers. Abdominal strength was measured by bent knee sit- ups and was recorded in numbers. To find out the effect of training programme on selected physical variables, dependent‘t’ test was applied and the level of significance was set at the 0.05. The study indicates that eight week of weight training programme, increase muscular strength. In same way it is evident from the results of present study of 18 to 24 years of male gender physical variables like Arm Strength, Abdominal Strength and Leg Strength got positive effect. So it can be conducted that the study reveals that arm strength, abdominal strength and leg strength increased by weight training programme.
