Six-Weeks training program to enhance wrestler relative strength


  • A. R. Shadiqin Universitas Lambung Mangkurat, Indonesia





This study explores the effect of six-week (36 sessions) programmed training on  improving wrestling athletes' relative strength.It analysesthe relative strength by calculating the total strength of arms/shoulders, abdominal, back, and leg, divided by subject’s body weight. This one group of pretest-posttest design indicates a group of subjects was given a specific treatment for 60 seconds of each push-up; sit-up; back dynamometer; and leg dynamometer. The study found thatthe programmed training is able to increase the strength of 11 athletes and decrease the mean valueof their body mass index.
