Abstract: The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of aerobic training, resistance training and concurrent training on resting heart rate among college boys. To achieve this purpose of the study, sixty college students were selected as subjects who were from the Acharya Nagarjuna University affiliated Colleges in Guntur. The selected subjects were aged between 18 to 22 years. They were divided into four equal groups of fifteen each, Group I underwent aerobic training, Group II underwent resistance training, Group III underwent concurrent training and Group IV acted as control that did not participate in any special training apart from their regular curricular activities. The subjects were tested on selected criterion variable such as resting heart rate prior to and immediately after the training period. The selected criterion variable such as resting heart rate was determined through using stop watch. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to find out the significant differences if any, between the experimental group and control group on selected criterion variable. In all the cases, 0.05 level of confidence was fixed to test the significance, which was considered as an appropriate. The result of the present study has revealed that there was a significant difference among the experimental and control group on resting heart rate.
