BACKGROUND: Musculo skeletal injuries are very common among physically active individuals and athletes and are most frequently observed in the population aged 18 to 25 years. General warm up and cool down will prevent injury along with specific strength training which will enhance physical performance. OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was conducted in order to compare the specific strength training profile combined with general warm-up and cool-down can improve physical performance and prevent injury for trained athletes. METHODS: To achieve the objective of the study, Thirty (N=30) athletes were selected 18 to 25 age groups and they were divided into two groups of twenty (n=15) each .general warm-up and cool-down was given to control group and general warm-up, specific strength training and cool-down was given to experimental group for eight weeks (3 days/week). Performance and injury prevention were measured before and after the training section for both groups. Descriptive statistics and dependent ‘t’ test were used to find out the results. This study state that there would be significant improvement on performance and prevent injury variables of trained athletes OUTCOME MEASURES: In this study two main outcome measures were taken into consideration. They are 6 minutes Run/Walk test – to assess endurance and changes in physical performance. Foot and ankle mobility (FAAM) – Questionnaire is just to assess physical function to prevent injury. RESULT: 6 minutes walk test and FAAM results are decreased with Group A than Group B. Group B shows significant improvement with specific strength training combined with warm up and cool down. CONCLUSION: This study concludes that with specific strength training exercises implemented with warm up and cool down exercises increases physical performance and prevents injury.
