Hill interval training and its effect on VO2 max amongst the football players


Dr. Sunil Dhiman


The purpose of the study was to evaluate and find out the effect of Hill interval training on VO2 MAX among football players. Thirty male football players were selected from C.C.S University men intercollegiate tournament who were participated in tournament. The selected subjects were aged between 18 to 23 years. The VO2 MAX was calculated and they were divided into two group. One group (N=15) considered as control group that did not participated in any special training apart from regular scheduled/curriculum and another group (N=15) considered as experimental group which underwent four-week Hill Training program. The selected criterion variable such VO2 Max was measured by the Cooper 12min/run/walk test and scores was recorded in ml/kg/min. The subjects were tested on selected criterion variable such as VO2 Max prior and immediately after the training program. The pretest and posttest data were evaluate by the Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) to find out the significance difference if any between the experimental and control group on selected criterion variable. The level of significance was set at 0.05 level of confidence. After applied ANCOVA it was revealed that there was a significant different among the experimental and control group on VO2 Max. Finally, it was concluded that 4 week of Hill interval training effect the VO2 Max performance of football players.
