Abstract

The purpose of the present study was to find out the effects of circuit training and battle rope training on upper body muscular endurance of school girls. To achieve the purpose of the study thirty school girls from M. Deivanai Achi Government Girls Higher Secondary School, Paganeri, Sivaganga District, Tamilnadu were selected as subjects. The selected subjects’ age ranged from 11 to 13 years. The selected subjects were equally divided into three groups, i.e. two experimental groups and one control group. The experimental group-1 was allotted to circuit training (CT); the experimental group-2 was allotted for battle rope training (BRT) and group-3 acted as control group (CG). The upper body muscular endurance was chosen as a dependent variable; it was tested by modified pushups. The test was taken before and after the training interventions. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to analyze the significant difference, if any among the groups. In order to find out superiority effect among the groups, the Scheff’s Post Hoc test was used. The level of significance was 0.05. After the six weeks training interventions the experimental groups improved the capacity of upper body muscular endurance. The best improvement was noticed in battle rope training.
