The purpose of the study was to determine the effect of Specific Training Programme on Forced Vital Capacity and Forced Expiratory Volume of Rope Mallakhamb Players Aged 12 To 18 Years. The review of literature does not indicate any studies to evaluate the utility of Specific Training for the development of Forced Vital Capacity and Forced Expiratory Volumesof Rope Mallakhamb Players. Methodology and Design: A sample of Sixty (n=60) Rope Mallakhamb players age ranged from 12-18 years was identified as subjects from MallakahambSangh Andheri area of Greater Mumbai. Further they were randomly divided into two equal groups i.e. experimental and control group with equal number of subjects. Experimental group is Specific Training Group (n=30) and Control group is Non Specific Training Group (n=30). The design of the study was Non-equivalent Control Group Design. The experimental subjects, along with day to day activity underwent through Specific Training programme for six days in a week except holiday. Materials and Method: At the baseline and after training intervention the Dependent variable i.e. Forced Vital Capacity and Forced Expiratory Volume test data were used for assessment. Statistical Analysis Used: Data were analyzed by using One Way ANCOVA test. Results: The results revealed that effect of Specific training programme helped to enhanceForced Vital Capacity and Forced Expiratory Volume of Rope Mallakhamb Players aged 12 to 18 years.
Key words: Rope Mallakhamb, Specific Training, Forced Vital Capacity, Forced Expiratory Volume
