Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of two interval training frequencies, on physical working capacity and running speed, when using untrained subjects and a constant work load. -- Eighteen untrained male subjects were divided into three matched groups, according to their placement in a modified Barrow zig zag run. Group one trained four times per week, group two trained two times per week and group three acted as a control group. All subjects received a pre and post test in a PWC-170 Test, a Shuttle Run and a Modified Barrow Zig Zag Run. The F-Test and Newman-Keuls Test were administered in the statistical analysis of the data. -- The results indicated that there was a significant difference between group one and group three and group two and group three in all tests used in the study. There were no significant differences between the two experimental groups. -- It was therefore concluded that training at a frequency of two times per week was just as effective as training four times per week in improving running speed and physical working capacity.
