A Comparison Of A Routine Training Program And An Exer-Genie Isometric-Isotonic Conditioning Program With Respect To Their Effects On Cardiovascular Condition And Jumping Ability, Kenneth R. Jacobs Jul 1969

A Comparison Of A Routine Training Program And An Exer-Genie Isometric-Isotonic Conditioning Program With Respect To Their Effects On Cardiovascular Condition And Jumping Ability, Kenneth R. Jacobs

All Master's Theses

It was the purpose of this study to determine statistically the effect of an Exer-Genie isometric-isotonic conditioning program on the jumping ability and cardiovascular fitness of junior high school athletes, as compared to a group of junior high school athletes involved in a routine conditioning program using calisthenics. The Sargent Jump Test was used to determine jumping ability and the Cameron Heartometer was used to determine cardiovascular fitness. Each group was compared in view of time spent on conditioning.

A Comparison Of Isometric Exercises And Weight Training On The Development Of Leg Strength And Jumping Ability In Secondary School Boys, Larry Charles Pryse

All Master's Theses

It was the purpose of this study (1) to determine the respective effectiveness of isometric and isotonic training in the development of leg strength; (2) to show the relationship of each of the two methods in leg strength development; (3) to investigate the improvement of jumping ability, as revealed through an experimental study; and (4) to compare both methods with the physical education exercises used at Davis High School.


Isometric Exercise Versus Isotonic Exercise As A Means Of Building And Retaining Strength, Rodney L. Waddell Jul 1966

Isometric Exercise Versus Isotonic Exercise As A Means Of Building And Retaining Strength, Rodney L. Waddell

All Master's Theses

It was the purpose of this study to compare results from the selected isotonic exercises as recommended by Steinhaus, the selected isometric exercises as recommended by Karpovich, and a non-directed exercise program on the seventh and eighth grade male students of Monroe Junior High School as a means of building and retaining strength which was measured by the Roger's Strength Test.
