Effects of 12-week weight training on resting pulse rate variables of secondary school girls


Author(s): Akkamahadevi Parthanahalli and Dr. Sakpal Hoovanna

Abstract: Weight training is a very important aspect of sports training or physical body training and everybody is aware of their effects on the body’s muscles and tendons. Many researchers and analysts also believe that weight training with the right cardio exercises is known to reduce and control hypertension and supports the cardio vascular health functions of the body. The greatest benefit of weight training on the body is the creation of lean body mass, which helps burning calories. This lean body mass is normally formed out of body fat. Weight training also improves the body’s sugar usage and thus helps maintain the blood sugar levels. Weight training is also responsible from maintaining and reducing the blood pressure levels of the body, thus further helping to reduce a person’s hypertensions. Studies have further shown that weight training if done accurately and periodically increases stamina, cardio vascular strength and endurance levels. Weight training also greatly reduces the risk of stroke and cardio vascular heart diseases. Weight training has to be performed in the presence of trained professionals and only with certified equipment. Weight training seems to be one of the better means of increasing both overall body strength and the development of isolated muscle groups. (Booth E.G, 1957) According to Cambell, (1962) weight training produces significantly greater increase in physical fitness than does a normal conditioning programmme alone. In fact, the ideal Weight training program for many children need not involve Weight at all. “The body doesn’t know the difference between Weight machine, a medicine ball, an elastic band and your own body Weight” Dr feign Baum said. In his own work with local schools, he often leads physical education class worm-ups that involve passing a medicine ball(usually a “1 kilo-gram ball for elementary school age children” and behavior ones for teenagers) or holding a broomstick to teach lunges safely.
