The present study aimed at comparing the effect of Bhastrika and Kapalbhati Pranayama on selected Physiological Variables of cricket nursery children. The study was conducted on 21 male students aged ranges from 14-18 years of cricket academy of Gwalior (mean and SD of age respectively 20±2 as the scores were normally distributed). The subjects were divided into 3 groups (two experimental and one control groups. The data were collected on the subjects on selected physiological variables before and after the training of pranayama of six weeks. The vital capacity, force vital capacity and breath holding capacity were measured by win spirometry and stopwatch. The tests were administered before pranayama training of Bhastrika and Kapalbhati group separately and again tested after training of Pranayama from all the groups. The ANCOVA test was employed as statistical analysis to compare the mean at 5% level of significance. Finally, significant difference was shown vital capacity significantly higher in Bhastrika Pranayama group than the Kapalbhati and control group. But force vital capacity and breath holding capacity have not shown any significant difference in both Bhastrika and Kapalbhati groups than control group. It mean force vital capacity and breath holding capacity are not influenced by the six weeks practice of Bhastrika pranayama and Kapalbhati Kaiya while Bhastrika practice involve the force full involvement and contribution of the respiratory muscles and tissue.Pages: 80-82 | 251 Views 84 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
