The aim of the present study was to find out the effects of imagery training on physiological variables among handball players. To achieve the purpose of the study male handball players were selected from Government Arts and Science College, (Affiliated to Bharathiar University, Coimbatore) Modakkurichi, Erode, Tamilnadu, India. The subjectâ€™s age ranges from 19 to 24 years. The selected subjects were divided into two equal groups consists of fifteen male handball players each namely experimental group and control group. The experimental group underwent a game specific exercise package programme for twelve weeks. The control group was not taking part in any training during the course of the study. Resting pulse rate and breath holding time was taken as criterion variable in this study. The selected subjects were tested on resting pulse rate and breath holding time was measured through pulse oximeter and digital stop watch. Pre-test was taken before the training period and post- test was measured immediately after the twelve-week training period. Statistical techniqueâ€˜tâ€™ ratio was used to analyze the means of the pre-test and post test data of experimental group and control group. The results revealed that there was a significant difference found on the criterion variable. The difference is found due to imagery training package given to the experimental group on resting pulse rate and breath holding time when compared to control group.
Keywords: Imagery Training, Handball Players, Resting Pulse Rate and Breath Holding Time.
