THE EFFECT OF POWER ENDURANCE EXERCISES USING CIRCUIT TRAINING METHODS ON VO2MAX KARATE KATA ATHLETES
This research aims to the effect of endurance training using the circuit training method on the athlete vo2max karate kata. The researchers did strength training that required physical components of physical endurance to support the athlete's ability to do repetitive motion exercises using circuit training methods that were expected to improve physical components made specifically for pre-match games. The method used in this study is the type of pre-experimental design of one group pretest-posttest. The study population was the karate kata athlete in UKM Karate UPI. Sampling is done by purposive sampling, where the sample is based on an assessment of the quality provided by a sample of 5 people. The results of this study indicate that endurance training using the circuit training method can increase the vo2max of karate athletes by obtaining t-test and post-cardiovascular values = -3,901 with degrees α = 0.05 and obtained Sig (2-tailed)) = 0.018 < 0.05. Thus, there is a significant increase in vo2max athletes in karate kata between the pretest and posttest scores using the circuit training training method.
