Purpose: The objective of this study is to analyze and compare the effectiveness of the total body resistance exercise – ascending, descending and constant load, in increasing strength, power, and stability. Methodology: The quantitative method with quasi-experimental design techniques was used in the study. Results: The results showed that: 1) in the ascending group, leg muscle strength had the highest percentage compared to other variables for 22%, while leg muscle power had the lowest score for 12%; 2) in the descending group, arm muscle strength had the highest score for 36% compared to other variables while the leg muscle power had the lowest score for 16%;
3) in the constant load group, arm muscle strength increased for 15%, leg muscle strength for 14%, arm muscle power for 12%, leg muscle power and stability for 8%, and body balance for 35%. Conclusion: There was significant effectiveness among the ascending, descending, and constant load groups in terms of increasing strength, power, and stability. The descending and constant load group had a greater or more effective impact on increasing arm muscle strength than the ascending group.
