Objective: To find out the effectiveness of Sports Specific Circuit Training and High Intensity Interval Training on aerobic capacity in male basketball players.
Study design: Quasi experimental study design. Subject: 40 subjects of basketball players with age group 18- 25 years of male gender, having agility score of <11.5 and V – sit and reach scores plus or above half inch from the point of zero.
Intervention: 20 subjects in the group A received Sports Specific Circuit Training and 20 subjects in group B received High Intensity Interval Training. Outcome measures: Aerobic Capacity (VO2 Max).
Results: Statistical analysis was done by using Paired ‘t’ and independent ‘t’ test showed significant improvement in improving aerobic capacity (VO2Max).
Conclusion: It is concluded that there is statistically significant improvement in aerobic capacity High Intensity Interval Training when compared to Sports Specific Circuit Training in male basketball players.
