What is the Effect of an 8 Week Theraband Exercise Programme on the Upper Body Strength Performance of Adolescent Boys?

Research Paper Title

Effects of 8 Weeks Theraband Exercise Program on Upper Body Strength Performance of Adolescent Boys.


The strength as a static measure avoids consideration of the complex interaction of force improvement and the speed of concentric and eccentric muscle actions.

Thera-bands are the only the resistance workout bands encouraged through the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).

The purpose of this study was to find out the effect of thera-band programme on upper body strength.

It has been scientifically accepted that any systematic training over a continuous period of time would lead to produce changes on athletic qualities.


A total of twenty-four adolescent boys were selected as subjects at random from the CMS Matriculation Higher Secondary School, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India.

The age of the subjects ranged from 14 to 17 years. The study was restricted to selected thera-band exercises.

The criterion variables selected for this study were upper body strength.

The dependent variables which measures the strength was selected as criterion variables. Because as a result of creating high tension in the muscle particularly in the age of adolescent and which are directly related to the training method.

The analysis was carried out through various techniques such as the dependent t-test, the univariate analysis of covariance (ANCOVA).


All of the statistical analysis tests were computed at 0.05 level of significance (P<0.05).


There was a significant improvement takes place on upper body strengths such as one RM bench press and pull-ups due to six weeks of thera-band training programme.
