Author(s): Rajkumar Bauri, Mrityunjay Biswas, Dr. Sandip Sankar Ghosh

Abstract: Objective: The objective of the present study was to find out the effect of selected yogic practices on aerobic capacity and anaerobic power of sedentary school boys of West Bengal. Subject: Twenty five (N = 25) sedentary school students were randomly selected as subjects for this study from Ashoknagar Boys Secondary High School, North 24 Parganas. The age ranged from 12-16 years. The study was confined into a single experimental group and no control group was considered. Methodology: In the present study Aerobic fitness in terms of VO2 max and Anaerobic Power were the two variables. Aerobic fitness were measured in terms of maximum oxygen consumption during exercise i.e. VO2 max. VO2 max was measured by Cureton’s 1.0 mile run/walk test (Cureton et al. 1995) which was developed on the population having age ranged from 8-17years. Anaerobic Power were measured respectively by Margaria-Kalamen Anaerobic Power Test. A structured yogic training was intervened for six week. Statistics: Mean and standard deviation of different variables were calculated. The data of the selected variables were analyzed through standard Statistical procedure. The mean of different variables were compared by using t- test. Statistical significance was tested at 0.05 level of confidence. Results: The results highlighted that there were significant difference in aerobic capacity between pre and post treatment condition. On the other hand no significant difference was found in anaerobic power between the pre and post treatment condition.
