Effect of Circuit Training Program on Motor Fitness Components and Skill Abilities of Under - 19 Football Players

Alexander Aaron Francis | Dr Nilesh Lohar

Abstract: The game of Football requires tremendous physical fitness played for 90 minutes, which involves basic movements such as kicking, running, jumping, rowing, dodging etc. This requires speed, strength, power, and agility wherein the brain improves coordination and concentration. Thus, promoting socialization, teamwork, and confidence building. Circuit training involves high - intensity aerobics, with the main aim of building muscle strength and endurance. It is an ideal form of exercise for footballers, as it combines resistance work with cardiovascular exercise for an all - round workout. Success in Football is dependent upon a variety of factors including the physical characteristics and physiological capacities of the players, their level of skill, their degree of motivation and tactics employed by them against the opposition. To determine the effect of circuit training on motor fitness components and skill ability of under - 19 football players. A pre - post design study involving 40 players who were randomly allocated to either experimental or control group. Pre and post assessments were done at the start and end of 8 weeks of circuit training or no program depending upon the allocated group. The experimental group showed significant improvement in all components of muscle strength, agility, power, speed, dribbling, juggling, and passing as compared to the control group at the end of 8 weeks of circuit training. Circuit training has shown to be effective in improving the motor fitness components and skill ability of under - 19 football players and can be incorporated in their training program.
