The purpose of the current study was to investigate the effect of different strength training on selected physiological and hematological variables among engineering college kabaddi players.For the purpose of the study, forty-five men kabaddi players studying bachelor’s degree in the different engineering colleges, affiliated to Anna University, Chennai were selected as subject and they were divided into three equal groups of fifteen subjects each at random namely plyometric training group, barbell training group and control group. The age of the selected subjects were ranged from 18 to 22 years. Group I underwent plyometric training and group II underwent barbell training for three days per week for six weeks. Group III acted as control they did not undergo any special training programme apart from their regular activity. The following dependent variables were selected for this study namely Vo2 max, Resting pulse rate, Hemoglobin and Red blood corpuscles. The data were collected on selected dependent variables at prior and immediately after the experimental period as pretest and posttest respectively. The data were analyzed by applying dependent ‘t’ test and analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to find out the significant difference among the groups, if any separately for each dependent variable. Since, three groups were compared, whenever the obtained ‘F’ ratio for adjusted posttest was found to be significant, the Scheffe’s post hoc was used to find out the paired mean differences, if any. The 0.05 level of confidence was fixed to test the level of significance which was considered as an appropriate. The result of the study showed that plyometric and barbell training developed VO2 Max of the engineering college kabaddi players, plyometric training and barbell training group showed normal resting pulse rate, barbell training group showed higher level of hemoglobin and red blood corpuscles
