The purpose of the study is to determine whether different strength training exercises will have an effect on the Resting Heart Rate among novice weight trainers. 90 (ninety) male from Summer Camp which was conducted at Lakshmibai National Institute of Physical Education, Gwalior were randomly selected as the subjects for the study. The age of the subjects was ranging from 16 to 45 years. The subjects were randomly assign to an experimental groups (Basic Pyramid strength training) and control group in equal numbers i.e., (n=30). To see the effect the analysis of covariance “F-ratio” was applied at 0.05 level of significance. For further analysis pair wise comparison of adjusted means was applied. After comparing the pair wise difference of adjusted means with critical difference, the Basic strength training program had the most significant effect on reducing the resting heart rate of novice weight trainers as the adjusted mean of Basic strength training (74.524) is smaller than the adjusted mean of Pyramid strength training (75.387).
