Abstract or Summary
  • Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness, if any, of ten weeks of motor psychophysics training on the development of dynamic muscular strength (as measured by the bench press and squat) in male college athletes and non-athletes. Procedures: This study was conducted during the first (spring) semester of 1982 at Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea. Eighty students volunteered to serve as subjects. Of the 80, forty were athletes majoring in Physical Education and the others were non-majors enrolled in general physical education classes. The pre and post-test control group research design was employed for this study. For the test period, the subjects were randomly assigned to either the experimental group (weight training plus motor psychophysics training) or the control group (weight training only). Prior to the experimental period all subjects participated in a two week pre-conditioning weight training program in order to be familiar with the training and testing procedures of the experimental period. After completing the pre-conditioning period, the subjects trained utilizing the bench press and squat exercises following dynamic strength program. Experimental training extended over ten weeks with training sessions of 90 minutes twice a week. In addition to the experimental weight training program, motor psychophysics training was added for the experimental group. The one repetition maximum in the bench press and squat was used as a base line for measuring changes in dynamic strength. Testing for possible changes in dynamic strength due to motor psycho-physics training was conducted prior to the start of the experimental period, at the start of the 4th, 7th, and at the conclusion of the 10th week of the experimental period. Analysis of Data: The collected data were analyzed by means of analysis of variance, t-test, percent, and the Least Significance Difference test. A significant level of .05 for rejection or acceptance of the null hypothesis was selected: Conclusions: From the statistical evaluation of the results, the following conclusions may be made. 1. Ten weeks of motor psychophysics training has a significant effect on the development of bench press strength of combined athletes and non-athletes. 2. Ten weeks of motor psychophysics training has a significant effect on the development of squat strength of combined athletes and non-athletes.
