Effect of intensive and extensive circuit weight training and detraining on mean arterial pressure
Dr. W Vinu
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of different intensity circuit weight training and detraining on selected physical, physiologicalMean Arterial Pressure. To achieve the purpose of the study, 45 male students from the department of physical education and sports sciences, Annamalai University, Chidambaram, Tamil Nadu, India were selected at random as subjects, in the age group of 18 to 20 years. The chosen subjects were randomly assigned into three groups of 15 each. Group-I acted as control, group-II followed intensive circuit weight training and group-III subjects underwent extensive circuit weight training. All the subjects had a similar academic work and regular activities in accordance with the requirements of the college curriculum. The subjects in the control group were not engaged in any activity other than the regular curriculum during the training period. The finding of the study are both intensive and extensive circuit weight training regiments contributed to the enhancement of mean arterial pressure. it is also observed the present study that detraining period, the gradual declination for both the experimental groups.
