Resistance training improves the muscular strength, power, endurance and speed. Muscle endurance is one of the important components to the person which prevent from early fatigue. Although there are different form of exercises to improve the endurance there is no strong evidences exists. Studies have shown that women are having poor muscle endurance. The aim of the study was to find out the effect of low volume resistance training on lower limb muscle endurance in collegiate women. 62 women were selected for the study, which fits in the inclusion criteria. They all divided into control group who receive general exercises and experimental group who receives low volume resistant training. Study was conducted for 8 weeks and the leg muscle endurance was used as outcome measure. The results were computed using SPSS 21.0 version. The study results show that there was significant difference in the leg muscle endurance between the experimental group and the control group. The low volume resistance training group produces better results than the general exercises group.
