The purpose of this study was to find out the effect of concurrent strength and endurance training on selected Physiological Variables among college level kabaddi players, namely Cardio-respiratory endurance and Resting pulse rate. To achieve this purpose, thirty students from selvam college of Physical Education, Namakkal, TamilNadu and India were selected as subjects at random. Their age ranged between eighteen to twenty two years. The selected subjects were divided into two equal groups of fifteen each namely concurrent strength and endurance training group and control group. The experimental group has undergone twelve weeks of concurrent strength and endurance training, whereas the control group maintained their daily routine activities and no special training was given. The subjects of the two groups were tested on selected variables namely Cardio-respiratory endurance and Resting pulse rate standardized tests, namely Cooper’s 12 minute walk/run test and counting on radial artery/minute at prior and immediately after the training period. The collected data were statistically analyzed through analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) to find out the significant difference, if any between the groups. The.05 level of confidence was fixed to test the level of significance which was considered as an appropriate. The results of the study showed that there was significant differences exist between concurrent strength and endurance training group and control group. Also, concurrent strength and endurance training group showed significant improvement on Cardio-respiratory endurance and Resting pulse rate compared to the control group.
