The purpose of the study was to find out the Analysis of predominance of specific preseason trainingselected motor ability components game specific exercises on physiological and psychological variables of men volleyball players. To achieve this purpose of the study sixty men volleyball players were selected studying Bachelor’s degree in the Department of Physical Education and Sports Sciences, A.V.V.M Sri Pushpam College, Poondi, Tamil Nadu, India at random bases. They were divided into three equal groups of each twenty players as weight training group (Group I), specific preseason traininggroup (Group II) game specific exercises group and act as control group (Group III). Group I and II were underwent their respective training programme for three days per week for twelve weeks who did not underwent any specific training programme apart from their regular physical education curriculum. The following physiological and psychological variables such as resting pulse rate and anxiety were selected as criterion variables. The resting pulse rate was assessed by taking radial pulse rate and anxiety was assessed by using stress questionnaire. All the subjects of three groups were tested on selected criterion variables at prior to and immediately after the training programme as pre and posttest selected. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to find out the significant difference if any, among the groups on each selected criterion variables separately. In all the cases, .05 level of confidence was fixed to test the significance, which was considered as an appropriate. There was a significant difference among specific preseason traininggroup, game specific exercises group and control group on physiological and psychological variables such as resting pulse rate and anxiety.
