Md. Imran Hossain [3] | Dr. Kanchan Bandopadhyay


Abstract: The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of weight training on selected physical fitness variables such as muscular strength (grip strength), abdominal strength endurance (sit ups) and speed (50 meter dash) among Rajbangsi boys. To achieve this purpose of the study, hundred (100) school going boys (14-16 years) were selected randomly two subdivisions in the district of Uttardinajpur, West Bengal. They were divided into two groups such as Rajbangsi Group (GR) and General Group (GG). Both group were divided into two groups such as experimental and control group, each consisting of twenty five (25) subjects. Selected weight training programme for 16 weeks was assigned as treatment to the entire experimental group. The selected criterion variables were assessed using standard procedures, before and after the training regimen. Data were analyzed with pair t-test and student t-test using SPSS version 19. The level of significance was set as 0.05. Data revealed that the improvement of grip strength and speed were better among Rajbangsi boys in comparison to General boys but on the other hand the improvement of abdominal strength endurance was better among General boys in comparison to Rajbangsi boys. These results suggest that weight training has significant influence in improving selected physical fitness variables.
