The following variables were measured with standard test items: Breath Holding Time (nose clip) and Resting Pulse rate (bio monitor). Pre and post test was conducted on separate days with warm up.
Result: The data was analyzed by applying dependent ‘t test. The level of significance was set at 0.05. The Silambam Practice after yogic practices had positive impact on resting heart rate and breath holding time among school boys.The result of the present study heart rate and breath holding time speculated significant improvement due to the silambam practice after yogic practice of school boys.
