CONTEXT: Little information is there on the training effect on junior Indian kayakers. Hence, it is of great interest to explore the influence of systematic training on morphophysiological and motor ability profiles of Indian young male kayakers. AIMS: The aim of this study was to find out such a training intensity that would be suitable for junior athletes to reach the zenith of their success. SETTINGS AND DESIGN: This was carried out in the center of Jagatpur, Sports Authority of India on 11 male kayakers. The training program was divided into eight phases. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Body height, body weight, body mass index, standing broad jump, standing vertical jump, trunk flexibility, 6 m × 10 m shuttle run, bench pull test/4 min, bench press test/4 min, sit-ups/min, push-ups/min, medicine ball throw, maximal oxygen uptake, 60 m standing start for anaerobic speed endurance, 2.4 km run, and hemoglobin (g%) were measured by the standard procedures. STATISTICAL ANALYSIS USED: Training phase differences were determined by analysis of variance, then Schiff's Post hoc test was performed with confidence levels at P < 0.001, P < 0.01, and P < 0.05. RESULTS: Performing time of 60 m standing start (sec) and 6 m × 10 m shuttle run (sec) was significantly decreased at P < 0.05 and P < 0.01. Standing vertical jump performance (cm), sit up/min, and push-up/min were significantly increased at P < 0.001, P < 0.05, and P < 0.05, respectively. Bench press performance/4 min and hemoglobin content were significantly improved at P < 0.001. CONCLUSION: Improvement and betterment were noted in performances even in formally trained athletes. A modified training protocol may be adopted for further improvement.
