Twenty male volleyball players were taken for this study and during an 8-week-period they did physical conditioning exercises by weight training 5 days a week. Physical fitness tests, auditory and visual reaction times were measured at the beginning and at the end of training period. When results statistically analysed, it was observed that physical conditioning exercises affected their physical fitness positively and moreover auditory and visual reaction times were shortened.
