The present study was undertaken to analyze the impact of complex training and resistance running program on 100- meters race performance of men sprinters. Total N=60 (sixty) male engineering students age ranging from 18-21 years selected from various branches of Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, India. The chosen sprinters were assigned into four subgroups by the equated group design on the bases of 100 meters run result performance. The subgroups namely empirical group – I considered as complex training group [CTG = 15], empirical group –II considered as resistance running program group [RRG =15], empirical group – III combined complex training resistance running program group [CCR=15] and control [CG=15] group – IV were restricted from taking part any specific coaching program (Under observation). The training period was for a twelve weeks. The data were collected before and after the training by conducting 100 meter test. The obtained data‟s were analyzed by Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA). The level of significant was fixed at 0.05 levels. The results of the study showed that that complex training, resistance running program and combined complex training and resistance running program were effective to increase the speed of 100 – meter dash performance of sprinters comparative to control group.
