Abstract:
This study was to examine the effects of low versus high load resistance training on selected health related physical fitness on weight lifters. Body composition cardio vascular endurance and muscular strength testing measure were recorded in meal weight lifters (N=22, age 20-23 years before and after 8 week low versus high load resistance training. Body composition assessment include ‘BMI’ test and 3 site skin folds test for body fat percentage and cardio vascular endurance test 12minute run test and step test, for strength test 1RM test and squat test for upper body strength and lower body strength respectively. A comparison was made using pared sample ‘T’ test. Significant improvement was made skin fold calipers and BMI test (p<0.05), 1RM test (p<0.05), squat test (p<0.05) and cupper test (p<0.05), step test (p<0.05). Generally based on mean value the respondent 8 week low versus high load resistance training on some selected health related physical fitness of weight lifters there were little difference between high load and low load resistance training on some selected health related physical fitness and HLR training have a greater significant improvement on body composition and strength performance. But LLR training has a great significant improvement on cardiovascular fitness.
