The intention of this investigation was to analyze the anaerobic power performance in response to different frequencies of aerobic interval training among football players. To achieve this purpose 45 male football players from Altius International Football Academy, Palakkad, Kerala, India, were chosen. The subjects were selected in the age group of 15 to 18 years. The study population was randomly divided into three equal groups of 15 each. Experimental group-I was given the packages of aerobic interval training (3days/week), experimental group-II was given the packages of aerobic interval training (6days/week) and group III was acted as control. They did these 2 trainings for 12 weeks. All the chosen three groups were assessed before and immediately after 12 weeks of training period on anaerobic power by conducting repeated anaerobic sprint test (RAST). The obtained data was analyzed by paired ‘t’ test to know the differences if any between the two testing periods. Additionally, magnitude of variation was also calculated. In addition, ANCOVA was also applied. When the adjusted ‘F’ was greater, Scheffe’s test was applied. Findings revealed that low frequency aerobic interval training (3days/week) leads to 4.08% of improvement in anaerobic power whereas performing high frequency aerobic interval training (6days/week) leads to 9.47% of improvement in anaerobic power of football players.
