Abstract: The aim of this research is to find out the effect of continuous running and stair climbing on strength endurance among university badminton players. For this purpose, randomly selected thirty badminton players from various faculties of Annamalai University were divided into three groups, continuous running, stair climbing, and control group. Continuous running group performed their specific training program with variation in the training program and Stair climbing exercise group after a warm up for 5 minutes underwent climbing stairs having 18 steps with vertical height of 3 meters with variation of slow, medium, high, medium and slow speed walk and sprints alternatively and finished each session with cool down exercises and the sessions lasted for 40 minutes in each day, on alternate days, forming three days a week. Statistical analysis of pre and post test means through ANCOVA and Scheffe’s post hoc test proved that there was significant improvement in selected endurance variable such as strength endurance due to continuous running and stair climbing training especially among handball players.
