Author(s): Sakti Ranjan Mishra, Kalidas karak, Bipul Chandra Sen

Abstract: One hundred fifty students acted as subjects for the study and were included in three groups i.e., two experimental groups (weight training and yoga) and the control group, each consisting of 50 students. The pre- test and pot test of the experimental groups after six week training were compared and the result indicated that both the experimental groups showed significant increase in performance of all the health related fitness variables under study, compared to those of control group. But the yoga group showed significantly better gain in performance of subjects in one mile run and tricep skin fold measurement than the weight training group. The results of the study coincided with the general conception that yogic exercises improve cardio-vascular endurance and weight training helps improve agility, muscular strength and endurance of the players in a progressive manner.
