Author(s): Rahul V Shriramwar, Dr. Vishal Deshpande
Abstract: The present study is conducted to investigate the effect of eccentric contraction training program on shoulder flexion ability of gymnast of 10 to 15 years age group. For the same eccentric exercise training was given to gymnasts for 12 weeks. The present study is carried out on the male gymnast of Marathwada Sanskrutik Mandal’s gymnastics centre, Aurangabad, Maharashtra. Total 30 samples who are at least state level gymnastics players are selected for the training from Marathwada Sanskrutik Mandal’s gymnastics centre, Aurangabad, Maharashtra. All 30 samples are experimental group. The ‘Single group Pre-test Post-test design’ is employed to conduct the experiment. Initially Shoulder flexion Pre-test is conducted for Experimental group. Experimental group are exposed to eccentric contraction training program for 12 weeks. Shoulder flexion Post-test is conducted for Experimental group, after 12 weeks of training. Mean, Standard deviation is employed for descriptive statistical analysis. Paired sample t-test, is employed for inferential statistical analysis. On the basis of statistical findings the present study concludes that eccentric contraction exercise training program improves shoulder flexion ability.
