The purpose of the study was to find out the effects of swissball training on selected physical fitness components among the postural deformities of school children. To achieve the purpose of the study, forty postural deformities of school children were selected randomly 9 to 14 years of age from different government and private school at Coimbatore. The selected subjects were divided into two equal groups namely experimental and control groups of 20 subjects each. The training period was limited to twelve weeks and for three days per week. The swissball training was selected as independent variables and Speed, Strength, Flexibility, Agility and Balance were selected as dependent variables and it was measured by 50 meters dash, 1RM test, sit and reach, Shuttle run(6X10) and flamingo balance test respectively. All the subjects were tested two days before and immediately after the experimental period on the selected dependent variables. The obtained data from the experimental group and control group before and after the experimental period were statistically analyzed with dependent ‘t’-test to find out significant improvements. The level of significance was fixed at 0.05 level confidences for all the cases. Significant improvement was found on speed, strength, flexibility, agility and balance of experimental group due to the effects of swissball training when compared to the control group.Pages: 261-264 | 132 Views 4 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
