EFFECT OF UPHILL TRAINING ON SELECTED PHYSIOLOGICAL VARIABLES AMONG INTERCOLLEGIATE LEVEL MEN BASKETBALL PLAYERS
Dr. Kishor Kumar B. S.
The main purpose of the study was to find out the effect of uphill training on selected physiological variables among inter collegiate level men Basketball players. To achieve the purpose of the study forty (N=40) male students in theage group of 19 to 25 years were selected as subjects at random from Ernakulam district.(n = 40, age 21.4 ± 0.4 y, height 178.8 ± 14.2 cm, weight 69.6 ± 12.7 kg).The physiological variables selected for the study were blood pressure, resting pulse rate and cardiorespiratory endurance. The following testing procedures were followed; blood pressure was measured (systolic and diastolic) using sphygmomanometer, resting heart rate was measured counting the pulse at resting condition and cardio-respiratory endurance was measured by using Coopers’s12 minutes run/ walk test and it was converted in VO2 max. Analysis of covariance was used to find out the significant difference if any, among the experimental groups and control group on selected criterion variables separately. The result of the study statistically found a significant improvement in the physiological variables such as bloodpressure, resting heart rate and cardio respiratory endurance due to uphill training on the experimental groups.
