Background: Due to the lack of physical activity now a day’s many youngsters are having health issues to do their regular activities. Muscular endurance and proper body composition are important to enable the person to carry out different type of day to day activities and sport activities all over the life time. The sport training is the way to develop one’s health and physical fitness to live a healthy.

Purpose: To identify the 12 weeks training effects of circuit training combined with different neuromuscular activities on muscular endurance and body composition of school girls.

Method: This is an intervention study carried out to compare effects of 4 groups. Group 1 (n=15), who trained circuit training (CT), group 2(n=15), who trained circuit training combined with resistance band (CT-RB), group 3(n=15), who trained circuit training combined with skipping rope (CT-SR) and group- 4(n=15) control group (CG). The pre and post test data was collected for the muscular enduranceand body composition.

Results: The difference between pre and post test was significant (p< 0.05) in the intervention groups and insignificant (p>0.01) in control group.

Conclusion: The circuit training combined with resistance band and skipping rope produced greater improvement on muscular endurance and reduced percentage of body composition
