Firdous Ahmed Lone and Nisar Ahmad HurahAbstract: Objective:
The objective of the study was to find out the effect of weight training on breath holding capacity of male sedentary students after 6 weeks training.
Methodology: For the present study sixty (50) male sedentary students (doing little or no physical exercise) receiving education in different fields i.e., medical, engineering, science and humanities of various institutions of Nanded district were selected as subjects in this study and were randomly placed in experimental group (n=25) and control group (n=25). The age of selected subjects’ range between 21-30 years. The subjects were tested before and after completion of 6 weeks of weight training programme. The variables selected for the present study were weight training (independent variable), Breath Holding Capacity (dependent variables). For this study pretest-posttest randomized group design, which consists of control group and experimental group was used. The data was collected from subjects before and after six weeks of Weight Training. For comparing pre and post-test means of experimental and control groups in relation to breath holding capacity, the descriptive statistics i.e., mean standard deviation. Standard error and t test were used and level of significance was kept at 0.05.
Result: The result of the present study showed that there was significant difference between pre and post-test means of (experimental group) Breath Holding Capacity. On the other hand, there was less improvement in criterion variable of control group.
Conclusion: On the basis of the findings it was concluded that weight training might be responsible for the improvement of Breath Holding Capacity. Pages: 113-115 | 215 Views 7 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
