Abstract: The purpose of this study was to find out the effect of sub maximal and maximal intensities of bicycle training on selected haematological variables among college men players. To achieve the purpose of the study 30 male college players from the different colleges were randomly selected as subjects and their age were 20-25 years. They were assigned into three groups namely, experimental group I, experimental group II and control group. Experimental group I served as bicycle sub maximal training group-I, second group served as bicycle maximal training group-II and third group served as control group. The selected haematological variables are haemoglobin and red blood cell. The study was true formulated as a true random group design consisting of pre-test and post-test. The subjects (N=30) were randomly assigned to three equal group of ten male adults each. The groups were assigned as experimental group-I (sub maximal bicycle training), experimental group-II (maximal bicycle training) and control group respectively. Pre-test were conducted for all the selected subjects on selected haematological variables. After the experimental period of six weeks post-test were conducted and the scores were recorded. The difference between initial and final scores in selected haematological variables were subjected to statistical treatment using Analysis of Covariance to find out whether the mean differences were significant or not. The result showed that there was significant difference due to sub maximal intensity bicycle training and maximal bicycle training among selected haematological variables i.e. sub maximal intensity bicycle training significantly increased red blood cell than maximal and control group and sub maximal intensity bicycle training significantly increased haemoglobin than maximal and control group.
