Abstract

The purpose of this study was to develop an effective circuit training program for increasing health using a rubber tube. Five healthy middle-aged and elderly women(68±4 years old) and seven female college students(21±1 years old)performed circuit training using an oil pressure-type machine for about 2 months. In addition, 11 healthy middle-aged and elderly women(61±9 years old)and eight healthy female college students(21±1 years old)performed circuit training using a rubber tube for about 3 months which included undertaking their heart rate and energy consumption. Furthermore, the subjects who performed circuit training using a rubber tube, performed a physical fitness test before and after training periods. In the results, the energy consumption in the circuit training using a rubber tube was at the same level as the energy consumption with the circuit training using the machine by middle- aged and elderly women. After training intervention, the sit-up test and chair-stand test were significantly improved. Therefore, in muscular endurance and the muscular strength of lower limbs, it was suggested that the circuit training using a rubber tube was effective for increases of the physical strength.
