Abstract


Purpose : This research examined the comparison of whole body vibration training and Nonwholebody vibration training on Leg Strength, Speed, Power and Flexibility.Methods : The subjects are 40 staffs from The Sport Authority of Thailand. They are 25-35years old, 20 male and 20 female. The subjects were divided into 4 groups (10 each). They were trainby the improved program based on Cole and Mahoney for 6 weeks. Leg Strength, 40-meters sprint, aVertical Jump, Sit and Reach test were perform before training begin, after training at third week, and atsixth week. Then test results were used to perform statistical analysis.

Results : The leg strength, speed, power, and flexibility tested between the male from group 1and group 2 and between female from group 1 and group 2 done before training, after training at thirdweek, and at sixth week of training show no different.

Conclusion : The present study demonstrates that the whole body vibration training and Nonwholebody vibration training increase the strength, speed, and power. The whole body vibration trainingincrease all parameter because the base stand of the vibrator machine vibrating vertically to inducecontinuous motion of the body training to stimulate the contractions and relaxations of muscles. While,the Non-whole body vibration training increase strength, speed and power because trained properly exercisethe frequency, intensity, duration and type of exercise.
