S. Manikandan

The purpose of the study was to investigate the effects of isolated and combined strength and endurance training induced adaptation on selected body composition variables among university players. Sixty university players selected as a subjects from the Department of Physical Education and Sports Sciences, Annamalai University. The age, height and weight of the subjects ranged from 19 to 22 years, 158 to 166 centimeters and 55 to 65 kilograms respectively. The selected subjects were randomly assigned into four equal groups of 15 subjects each. Strength training group – I, endurance training group – II, combined strength and endurance training group – III and control group – IV. The collected data analyzed by analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). When the obtained ‘F’ ratio value was significant the Scheffe’s test was applied as post hoc test. The result of the study revealed that twelve weeks of isolated and combined strength and endurance training reduced of body mass index, and percent body fat.
