Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate effects of pneumatic of functional training on the roundhouse kick velocity to the head and to compare with weight of functional training on the roundhouse kick velocity to the head in male taekwondo athletes.
Methods: Twenty male taekwondo athletes from University, aged range between 18-22 years, were recruited. They were divided into two groups, 1) pneumatic functional training group (n=10) and 2) functional training group (n=10) Both groups were trained at 40% 1RM 3 days per week for 6 weeks. The dependent variables include kicking velocity: Hip angular velocity, knee angular velocity, knee velocity and foot velocity. The obtained data were analyzed in term of means and standard deviations and verified by comparing t-test with a technique of pair sampling t-test and independent t-test, respectively. Differences were considered to be significant at p < .05.
Results: The mean values of kicking velocity: Hip angular velocity, knee angular velocity, knee velocity and foot velocity in the pneumatic of functional training group was significantly higher than pre-test at the .05 level and no significant different in
the mean values of kicking velocity in the weight of functional training group among post-test
Conclusion: The pneumatic of functional training group had positive effects on the roundhouse kick velocity to the head and can be used training for taekwondo athletes.
