Author(s): Anantarup Sen Sarma

Abstract: Aims and Objectives: The purpose of this study was to compare Selected Physiological Variables between active and sedentary male college students and therefore to show the importance of active lifestyle.
Material & Methods: The present study was carried out in 60 male college students between the age group of 18-22 yrs. They were divided into two groups, study group (30 active students) and (30 sedentary students). BMI was calculated with standard formula, cardiorespiratory fitness was measured by Coopers 12 min. run/walk test. The maximum oxygen uptake capacity (VO2 max) was compared by using Queen’ college step test (Harward step test).
Results: All the physiological variables were higher in active than sedentary college students.
Conclusion: The present study showed VO2 max levels more in active college students. Now a days, physical inactivity is seen among students due to sedentary lifestyle which may lead to many health problems. Hence, we suggest that students should get involved in sports and it should make a compulsory subject in colleges.
