Dr. Shiv Mangal YadavAbstract:
The objective of present study was to examine the isolated and combined effect of yogic practice and aerobic training on cardiac parasympathetic function (E: I ratio) variable of adolescent boys in Puducherry. Total 60 subjects completed this prospective randomized study with 15 in the yoga group that were matched with the same number of subjects in the aerobic, combined training and control groups. E: I ratio variable was determined at the beginning (baseline) and after the twelve weeks training intervals. The difference in the mean E: I ratio value of each group was tested for the significance of difference by ANCOVA test. The E: I ratio variable in the all three experimental groups was markedly improved compared with control group (P>0.05). The results have shown the significant improvement in E: I ratio, since calculated F (=8.98*) ≥ tab F.05 (2, 42) (= 4.14). Adjusted F ratio value (30.39*) was significantly higher than the table value. The finding of study suggests that the twelve weeks of isolated and combined yogic practice and aerobic training have significantly improvement on E: I ratio variable. In all cases 0.05 levels has been fixed to test the significance.Pages: 269-271 | 1463 Views 40 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
