Sameersingh Pradeepsingh ChavhanAbstract:
The purpose of the present study was to find out the effects of yoga training on low level physical fitness secondary school boys. The subjects were selected from the Shree Ganeshdas Rathi Vidyalaya, Amravati district. Forty boys were selected as subjects for this study. All the subjects were divided into two groups, one groups is low physical fitness (A) and tow group normal physical fitness (B) consisting of 20 subjects each. The subjects were selected by using simple random sampling method. Pull-ups, sit-ups, shuttle run, 50 yard dash, standing broad jump and 600 yard run/walk were selected as variables for this study. All the variables measured in during school session with the help of standard scientific instruments and techniques. All the subjects were divided into two groups ‘A’ Low physical fitness and ‘B’ normal physical fitness. Each group consists of 20 subjects and all the subjects were having regular fitness. The groups ‘A’ acted as experimental group and group ‘B’ acted as control group. Group ‘A’ underwent a specific yoga training programme for the duration of six weeks. The data collected on 40-male subjects before and after six week yoga training program on pull-ups, sit-ups, shuttle run, 50 yard dash, standing broad jump and 600 yard run / walk was analyzed by comparing the means of pre and post test of experimental and control groups and again statistically analyzed by applying ‘t’-test to check the significant difference among selected variables. The results and findings can be discussed with the help of the following points: There is significant difference in pull-ups, sit-ups and standing broad jump of experimental group between pre and posttest. Six week yoga training programme shows positive effects on some physical fitness variables. There is no significant difference in shuttle run, 50 yard dash and 600 yard run / walk of experimental group between pre and posttest. There is no significant difference in all physical fitness variables of control group between pre and posttest.Pages: 37-40 | 1256 Views 23 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
