This study was designed to examine the effects of skill-based exercise and high intensity training on physiological and bio-motor variables among women volleyball players. In order to accomplish the purpose of the study, 45 women volleyball players ranging in age from 17 to 23 years old were recruited from the Chennai region of Tamil Nadu, India. Each group consisted of 15 subjects. A group of participants trained in skill-based exercises, a group of participants trained in high intensity for eight weeks, and a group of participants acted as a control who did not perform any training other than their everyday routine. Dependent variables selected included bio-motor variables like agility and physiology variables like vital capacity. T-tests and wet spirometers were used to test agility and vital capacity. Randomized groups were used in this study both before and after the assessment. In the study, data were collected before and after the eight-week training period. The collected data were analysed statistically by using the 'ANOVA' test, which was used to determine if there was a significant improvement on selected variables from the baseline to the post-training evaluation. Women volleyball players showed significant improvements in agility and vital capacity following skill based exercise and high intensity training.
