A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE EFFECTS OF ISOMETRIC TRAINING ON THE PHYSICAL FITNESS OF MALE YOUTH.
REDEMER, MERRILL
THE VALIDATION OF AN INEXPENSIVE, SIMPLE ISOMETRIC TRAINING PROGRAM WAS REPORTED. THE COMPARATIVE EXPERIMENT CONSISTED OF 107 JUNIOR HIGH FRESHMAN SAMPLES. COMPARISON GROUPS CONSISTED OF 62 SUBJECTS IN A WEIGHT TRAINING PROGRAM AND 45 IN AN ISOMETRIC TRAINING PROGRAM. THE YOUTH FITNESS TEST WAS USED TO DETERMINE THE VARIOUS ATTRIBUTES OF PHYSICAL FITNESS. THE EXPERIMENTAL ISOMETRIC GROUP RECEIVED A ROUTINE OF 10 BASIC EXERCISES DEVELOPED BY THE STAFF. ILLUSTRATIVE PHOTOGRAPHS WERE INCLUDED. THE WEIGHT GROUP RECEIVED A ROUTINE OF SIX TO EIGHT REPETITIONS OF THE BASIC EXERCISES. PRE- AND POST-TESTS OF THE FITNESS INSTRUMENT WERE ADMINISTERED. THE RATIO OF HEIGHT AND WEIGHT WAS COMPARED. THE RESULTS INDICATED NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GROUPS. THE RECOMMENDATIONS SUGGESTED THE UTILIZATION OF ISOMETRIC TRAINING TO ENABLE STUDENTS TO EXPERIENCE THE BENEFITS OF PHYSICAL FITNESS PROGRAMS. (RS)
