Abstract

The study aimed to acknowledge the training program’s efficiency by using the free weights in order to develop the physical abilities for Palestinian Taekwondo Players Team. The sample consisted of 12 players, the training program was applied for three months by using the free weights, as one training unit daily, a total of six training units weekly. The three measurements included the maximum force of the chest muscles, the explosive force of the two legs, in addition to the maximum strength of the muscles of the two legs and the speed burdening. The percentages resulted from the study showed that the suggested training program had a positive impact on the mentioned variables (31%, -16.13%, 42.63%, 6.76%). Within these results, we suggested several recommendations and the most important one is the necessity to use free weights during training.
