METHODS
30 healthy female university students participated in two trials: (1) TKD training and lower limb strengthening training and (2) a control group. Experimental group was composed of 15 students training for ten weeks, two hours a days, two days a week. Upon completing, students were measured on quadriceps muscle strength, static and dynamic balance. The data were analyzed utilizing two-way repeated ANOVA.
RESULTS
The results showed that there were no significant differences in weight, body fat, and BMI between groups. The result showed a significant interaction in left knee muscular power between groups(p<.05), and the training group showed a significant improvement(p<.05). The result showed a significant interaction in the static balance(p<.05) and the Y-balance(p<.001), the results showed a significant differences between groups in the static balance(p<.05) and the Y-balance(p<.001).
CONCLUSIONS
TaeKwonDo and lower limb strengthening training gives positive effects on left quadriceps muscle strength and improves the overall of balance of female university students. The combined training program can be an effective way to enhance balance and can be used for patients who have balance problems in their lower bodies.
