The cardiovascular endurance was measured on total distance covered in six minutes run and walk in water. The data obtained was analyzed using paired‘t’ test.
Results: There was a significant improvement in the Cardio vascular endurance (p=0.00), and significant depletion in fat percentage (p=0.00) was found after undergoing six weeks of water exercise programme
