Abstract

This study is done to determine and investigated the different duration of muscle contraction on muscular endurance and body composition among sedentary college student. All the participants in this study are from Tunku Abdul Rahman University College. There are 24 subjects involved in this study. 20 males subject and 4 females subject are recruited. The age between the youngest and oldest will be 18 – 22 years old. All the subjects were divided into two group which is Fast Contraction Group (n = 12) and Slow Contraction Group (n = 12) by using systematic counter balancing method. Fish bowl method was used to determine which group will be the Fast or Slow Contraction Group. Both the group undergo 8 weeks of training body weight circuit training. All the subjects take part in training twice per week. The participants were tested with Push-Ups Test, Partial Curl-Up Test and Two Leg Squat Test to determine the whole body muscular endurance. In-Body Bio-Impedance 230 Body Composition were used to determine the subjects Skeletal Muscle Mass and Body Fat Percentage. All the four test were conducted for both pre-test and post-test. Data analysis shows that there was no significant difference between Fast Contraction Group and Slow Contraction Group in the post test. Meanwhile, there was significant improvement in the pre and post-test of Push-Ups Test and Test and Two Leg Squat Test but not in Partial Curl-Up Test within Fast Contraction Group. On the other hand, there was significant improvement in the pre and post-test of Push-Ups Test, Partial Curl-Up Test and Two Leg Squat Test within Slow Contraction Group. Both the group showed no significant improvement in the Skeletal Muscle Mass and Body Fat Percentage using In-Body Bio-Impedance 230 Body Composition when compare between group and within group itself.
