Abstract

This research investigates the level of perception on strength training of junior high school student dancers. It is widely believed that strength training is a healthy type of exercise that improves physical performance, encourages the growth of muscles, and benefits general health and wellbeing. The descriptive-comparative research design was utilized in this study. The respondents were 30 student dancers from one of the secondary schools of Cluster 10 in Davao City. An adapted questionnaire was utilized in collecting data from the respondents and it has passed through reliability testing which resulted to Cronbachs Alpha of .86. Based on the mean result of the analyzed data, it shows that the indicator of comprehensive inclusion is perceived as High which tells that the level comprehensive inclusion in terms of perception on ST is at high level. Furthermore, according to the result of ANOVA, the analyzed data showed that there is no significant difference on the level of perception on strength training observed across age and sex demographics but notable variation across the respondents year levels. Therefore, it is recommended to develop targeted educational materials or workshops that address the specific concerns or misconceptions identified within each year level to promote a more consistent and accurate understanding of strength training across all respondents.
