Abstract

Objective: To compare the effect of cluster training and traditional training on muscular strength outcome in recreational males. Study Design: Comparative Study. Methods: 32 male participants aged between 18-30 years who were already exposed to 6 months of resistance training were included in the study. They were then randomized by lottery method to cluster group (n=16) and traditional group (n=16). Each group underwent training for 7 weeks and their pre and post training strength measure was documented. The Paired 't' test was used to analyze within group difference while independent 't' test was used for between group differences. Level of significance was set at p<0.05. Results: Significant improvement in strength (p<0.05) was found post training compared to pre training in both the groups. However greater improvement in strength was seen in CT group when compared to TT group. Conclusion: Based on the results, Cluster training outperformed traditional training in improving strength development. Cluster training may be an alternate for Traditional training in strength development training programs.
