B Bindu and Dr. G santoshkumarAbstract:
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of brisk walking on grass on selected physiological variables such as systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure. To achieve this purpose of the study, thirty middle aged women in and around Vellore District, Tamil Nadu, India were selected as subjects at random. The age of the subjects were ranged from 35 to 45 years. The selected subjects were divided into two equal groups of fifteen subjects each, such as brisk walking on grass group (Group I) and control group (Group II). The brisk walking on grass group (Group I) underwent their respective training programme for three days per week for twelve weeks. Group II acted as control in which they did not undergo any special training programme apart from their regular day today activities. All the subjects of two groups were tested on selected criterion variable such as systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure at prior to and immediately after the training programme by using sphygmomanometer. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to analysis the significant difference, if any in between the groups. The level of significant to test the ‘F’ ratio obtained by the analysis of covariance was tested at.05 level of confidence, which was considered as an appropriate. The results of the study revealed that there was a significant difference between brisk walking on grass group and control group on selected physiological variables such as systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure. Significant changes on selected criterion variables were also noticed due to brisk walking on grass.Pages: 70-72 | 591 Views 12 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
