The purpose of the study was to find out the effects of varied combinatons of aerobic dance, brain gym and yogasana on the selected physical fitness variables among school girls. Methodology
of the study was formulated as pre and posttest random group design. The selected subjects were the participants of the school girls in the trichy district. The age of the subjects for the study was ranged in between 14 to 18 years. The subjects were randomly selected and divided into four equal groups - Group I, aerobic group, Group II, aerobic with brain gym, Group III aerobic with yogasana and Group IV, control group and each group consisting of 15 subjects, totally 60 subjects. The selected subjects were initially tested on the criterion variables used in the study and it is considered as the pre-test. After assessing the pre-test, the subjects belonging to the group-I aerobic group were treated with the aerobic dance, the group II treated with the aerobic dance with brain gym, Group III aerobic dance with yogasana and the group III control group was not given specific training. Statistical Tool
, the collected data were statistically analyzed with a paired (sample) t test to find out the significant improvement between pre and post test of all the groups. The groups during the experimental period of twelve weeks to the criterion measures were tested for the significance by applying t test at 0.05 level. It was considered as sufficient for the study. The collected data was processed by using the Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) to determine the significant difference among the treatment means of the each variable. During the analysis of covariance showed significant differences between treatment means, Scheffe’s post hoc test was applied to test the significant differences between the paired adjusted means at 0.05 level of the confidence. Discussion
, before and after training the pre test and the post test was conducted for the four groups. Subjects in the experimental groups were treated with the respective treatment for three days a week for the duration of 12 weeks. After completion of the treatment period all the subjects were again tested on the criterion variables and considered as the post test. Conclusion
, it was concluded that the group I, aerobic dance group and the group II, aerobic dance with brain gym, the group III aerobic dance with yogasana after 12 weeks training showed a significant improvements on the selected physical fitness variables.
