Background: The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of Own Body Exercise with Specific Recreational Activities (OBEWSRA) on selected strength variables among volleyball players.
Methods: Data were analysed from thirty collegiate volleyball players (VB) who were selected from Chennai, Tamil Nadu. The age of the selected subjects was between 17 to 25 years. Further they were classified at random in two equal groups of 15 (n=15) subjects each. Group - I (Experimental Group) underwent own body exercise training with specific recreation activities (OBEWSRA) thrice in a week for six weeks, and each section lasted for 45minutes and the Group – II - that was a control group (CG) did not undergo any special training apart from the regular exercises. The explosive strength and strength endurance were measured and tested for both the group members before and after the training session. The Analysis of variance (ANOVA) which has a set value of p<0.05 was performed to find out the significant mean differences.
Results: The study revealed that the selected criterion variables of explosive strength and strength endurance significantly improved in the six weeks duration of OBEWSRA among volleyball players.
Concluded: It was concluded that OBEWSRA significantly increased explosive strength and strength endurance among volleyball players.
