Purpose The purpose of this study was to investigate whether a power endurance training using intra-set rest provides better peak power and average peak power adaptations than traditional training.
Methods Thirty male rugby football players of Chulalongkorn University (age = 18-25 yrs.) were recruited in this study. All subjects were divided into two groups: Traditional training group and intra-set rest training group. Both groups trained twice a week for a period of six weeks. The subjects were tested for peak power, force, velocity and average peak power, force, velocity prior to and after six weeks of experimental. The obtained data were analyzed in term of means and standard deviations and verified by comparing the mean differences using pair sampling t-test and independent t-test, respectively.
Results (1) After six weeks of experimental, peak power, average peak power, peak velocity and average peak velocity in the intra-set rest training group was significantly better than pre-test at the .05 level and no significant different in peak force and average peak force among pre-test and post-test. (2) After six weeks of experimental, peak power, average peak power, peak velocity and average peak velocity in the intra-set rest training group was significantly better than traditional group at the .05 level and no significant different in peak force and average peak force among 2 groups
Conclusion The power endurance training using intra-set rest is more effective for enhancing average peak power than the traditional training in male rugby football players.
