Implications of Resistance Training with Active and Controlled Muscle Action on Football Players Aerobe Performance

Jemal Awel [2]


Abstract: This study targets to identify the implications of resistance training with active muscle and controlled muscle action on football players performances. Twenty athletes were randomly distributed in to two groups, namely active muscle action group (AMAG) (n = 10), and controlled muscle action group (CMAG) (n = 10). Purposive sampling technique was used to select 20 interested football players from the five Adigrat town football club participants, aged between 20 to 27 years old. The duration of experimentation was eight consecutive weeks three times in a week, 60 minutes per session. Both experimental groups were taken part in resistance training. The results indicated that the AMAG showed a significant improvements reduced blood pressure and heart rate level (P < 0.001/ p< 0.003) and (P < 0.001) respectively also, increment in muscle hyperplasia (P < 0.000) and muscle strength (P < 0.000). Whereas the CMAG athletes showed a significant change an elevation in diastolic blood pressure (P < 0.000), increase in muscle hypertrophy (P < 0.000) and enhancement in muscle strength (P < 0.000). In conclusion, this study indicates that, resistance training with active muscle action mainly provides aerobic benefits but resistance training with controlled muscle action supports the bodys anaerobic capacity. Thus, the capable of doing a sustainable or long duration physical exercise like football highly benefited from the resistance training with controlled muscle action.
