Abstract:   (4511 Views)

  This research was conducted to examin the effects of adding forward running and backward running training in a wobble board training program on some of functional static balance tests. In this research sixty-five young healthy males (13-17years) were selected by nonprobability sampling and assigned randomly into three groups.

  Group I included 25 subjects that performed 10 minutes forward running training first and then 15 minutes wobble board training.

  Group II included 25 subject that performed 10 minutes backward running training first and then 15 minutes wobble board training.

  Group III included 15 subjects that performed just 15 minutes wobble board training.

  Each group, was trained for six weeks and three times weekly. The functional static balance tests included the most possible time of standing on domminant leg in the straight posture on the firm support surface (A), standing on dominant leg in the straight posture on the foam support surface (B), standing on dominant leg in the semisquat posture on the firm support surface (C), standing on dominant leg in the semisquat posture on the foam support surface (D). All tests were performed with closed eyes. These teste were performed and 4 times in the training period. Results did not show any significant difference of the means among three groups after 6 weeks of training, but significant difference of the means of A, B, D tests was observed among three groups in the end of the second week. We have concluded that backward running for two weeks has a facility effect on the static balance by wobble training.
