The purpose of this study was to compare and contrast the physical fitness and stability of poomsae players and non-players who participated the core stability training and to understand the effects of core stability training.
Nineteen Taekwnodo poomsae players were recruited using random sampling from G university in kyung-gi province. The subjects were divided into two groups (exercise group, n=9, control group, n=10) and measured pre - post tests of muscular strength, muscle endurance, flexibility, agility and stability. The date were analyzed utilizing two-way repeated ANOVA, paired t-test, and independent t-test.
1) The results showed a significant inter-relationship (p=.001) among muscular strength, muscle endurance, flexibility, and agility. From the results of post-hoc test, there were significant relationships among muscular strength, muscle endurance, and flexibility (p=.001), and agility (p=.008) after the core stability training in exercise group. Also, the results showed that significant relationships in muscular strength (p=.005), muscle endurance ( p =.028), flexibility ( p =.001), agility ( p =.008) between groups. 2) There was a significant relationship ( p =.037) in both feet overall stability index. From the post-hoc test of timing, there was also a significant relationship in both feet overall and both feet anterior and posterior ( p =.049) after the core stability training in exercise group.
There was a positive effect on muscular strength, muscle endurance, flexibility, agility, both feet overall stability, and both feet anterior and posterior stability in exercise group attended core stability training. These results indicated that the poomsae players' core muscle were strengthened through the core stability training. Also, it is believed that the core stability training would increase capabilities of balance control and stable posture in the trial of clear movement using central axis of body and a process of connecting movements during the poomsae demonstration.
