Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of power weight training and conventional weight training on forced vital capacity and forced expiratory volume in one second in college males. Sixteen college males were employed as the two experimental groups: seven subjects for a power weight training experimental group and nine subjects for a conventional weight training experimental group. Seven college males served as a control group for the study. Core exercises for the power weight training experimental group included the squat, the bench press, and a mini-weight circuit; whereas the conventional weight training experimental group performed general weight training. The subjects trained two days per week for a total of eight weeks. Selected pulmonary function measurements were administered prior to and at the end of the training period. The data collected were statistically analyzed using a paired t-test and one-way analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). The .05 level of significance was selected for retaining or rejecting the null hypotheses (p < .05). The results of the training program indicated a minimal increase in the selected pulmonary function values, and no differences were found between the two training protocols. The results support the general be lief that weight training is not an effective means of improving pulmonary function. However, based upon a lack of published experiments on the relationship between respiratory accessory muscles, pulmonary functions, and exercise, further study is recommended.
