Effect of an hour physical activity and Koga on cardiovascular endurance and resting heart rate among school children


Author(s): Ajayaghosh MV and Dr. V Mahadevan

Abstract: Physical activity is a vital thing in human life, but our new generation having a sedentary lifestyle, it makes lifestyle diseases in our children. The purpose of this study was to find out the effect of an hour Physical activity (combined, resistance and aerobic training) and Koga on cardiovascular endurance and resting heart rate among students. To accomplish the purpose of the study, forty-five overweight children had been chosen randomly from Chennai. The subjects' age ranged from 14 to 16 years. They had divided into three equal groups consists of 15 subjects each. Group-I had Given an hour of selected combined physical training, Group-II had given Koga Training, and Group-III was control which had not received any special pieces of exercise apart from the regular activities. The selected combined physical training and Koga training had selected as independent variables. Cardiovascular Endurance and Resting Heart Rate had chosen as dependent variables, and all dependent variables had measured by standardized test items as 1 mile run test and Heart rate monitor. Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) would be applied to find out the significant mean differences. In all the cases, the 0.05 level of confidence has fixed to test the hypothesis. Scheffe’s post hoc test used to find out the mean difference on selected dependent variable among the groups. The results of the study exposed that the experimental groups had finished a significant difference in all the selected variables such as cardiovascular endurance and resting heart rate to compare the control group. Hence it was concluded that an hour Physical activity and Koga enhanced cardiovascular endurance and decreased resting heart rate among school children.
