Siju P. John | Dr. George Abraham

Abstract: The purpose of the study was to find out the influence of strength training on sugar level among middle aged men. Twenty middle aged men (n = 20) were randomly selected as subjects. The age of the subjects ranged from 40 to 55 years. The subjects divided into two equal groups of ten subjects each (n = 10). In which, the group I underwent strength training (STG) for three days per week for eight weeks and group II acted as a control (CG) who did not undergo any special training programme apart from their regular activities. Fasting blood sugar level was taken as variable for this investigation. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to analyze the collected data. The results revealed that the strength training group (STG) produced significant reduction (p 0.01) due to strength training on fasting blood sugar level when compared to control group (CG).
