Effect of functional strength training on certain physical and physiological variables among young female handball players

Functional strength training involves performance work against resistance in such a manner that the improvements in strength directly enhance The performance of movements so the an individual's activities of daily living are easier to perform simply stated, the primary goal of functional training is to transfer improvements in strength achieved in one movement to enhance the performance of other movements by affecting the entire neuromuscular system. The aim of this study was to investigate that Effect of functional strength training on oxidative stress and certain physical variables for young Handball players. Methods.Twenty young handball female players, divided into (2) group. The experimental group (n = 10 female players) performance functional strength training And control group (n = 10 female players) performed traditional exercise. Blood and urine samples were collected before and after (10) weeks. Serum uric acid (UA), creatine phosphokinase and urinary malondialdehyde (MDA) were evaluated. As markers of oxidative damage to lipids and proteins, statistical analysis of the results was carried out with the use of SPSS software. Results.The experimental group had significantly higher than the control group in Serum uric acid (UA), and creatine phosphokinase and urinary malondialdehyde (MDA), and the experimental group had significantly higher than the control group on a core stability test, balance . In addition, No significant difference was found between the experimental group and the control group in power and strength . Conclusion.Under the condition of our study, functional strength intervention for twelve weeks has a beneficial effect on oxidative stress and core stability test, balance of Handball players.
