Author(s): Tithi Roy and Anup De

Abstract: Purpose of the study was to investigate the twelve weeks bratachari and folk games programmes on blood lipid profile before and after of the obese adolescents.
Subjects were selected from North 24 Parganas district under the state of West Bengal with 45 male sample sizes on three equal groups i.e. bratachari dance group (G1=15), folk game group (G2=15) and control group (G3=15)
Variables were considered on blood lipid profile i.e. HDL, LDL, TC and TG cholesterol of obese adolescent.
Criteria of blood lipid profile in each component were measured as enzymatic-photometric analyzer and recorded in mg/dL respectively.
Experimental protocol was set into bratachari and folk games group and control group and twelve weeks’ training period was served to experimental group.
Statistics were done on mean, standard deviation, standard error of mean, and ANCOVA for investigating the effect of twelve weeks bratachari and folk games programmes in which level of significance was set at 0.05 level of confidence.
Result of the present study of twelve week programmes shows that significant differences have been observed among the mean value of pre test, post test and adjusted post test scores among two experimental group and control group.
Implementation leads that physicians and health experts can use the bratachari and folk game programmes for improving lipid disorders of overweight children and adolescents, and thus can prevent major diseases through training them about proper nutrition and regular physical activity.
Conclusions are made that systematic and well planned bratachari and folk games programmes significantly reduce the total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides and significantly increase the level of HDL cholesterol in obese adolescents.
