The training programme was carried out three days per week for twelve weeks. Prior to and after the training period the subjects were tested for flexibility and reaction time. Flexibility was assessed by sit and reach test and reaction time was measured by Groningen reaction time test. The statistical tool used for the present study was independent ‘T’ test.
