Further they were divided into three groups, with 30 subjects in each group such as Plank, Weight Training Exercises and control group. Data was analyzed by using ‘t’ test and analysis of covariance (ANCOVA).
Results: As Plank and Weight Training Exercises groups improved significantly having ‘t’ values 35.53 and 39.66 respectively. Control group also significant having ‘t’ value 28.76 but performance was not improved. Pages: 80-82 | 28 Views 8 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
