Author(s): Dr. A Nallamuthu and Dr. K Balamurugan

Abstract:
This study was to find out the combined and isolated effect of asanas and pranayama practices on vital capacity among obese men. To achieve this purpose of the study sixty obese men selected from in and around Perambalur, Tamil Nadu, India and their age ranged between 17-25 years will be selected as subjects. The selected subjects will be divided into four equal groups, in which, group – I (n = 15) will undergo asana practices, group – II (n = 15) will undergo pranayama practices, group – III (n = 15) will undergo asana and pranayama practices and group – IV (n = 15) will act as control which do not participate in any special training. The training programme will be carried out for this study is three days per week for twelve weeks. The subjects were tested on selected variables, such as, vital capacity before and after the training period. Prior after the training period vital capacity were measured by using wet spirometer. Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was applied as statistical tool for the present study. The Scheffé S test was used as post-hoc test at whatever point the ‘F’ - ratio of the adjusted post-test means were discovered to be significant at 0.05 level of significance. Both asana, pranayama and asanas with pranayama practices group influence on vital capacity when compared with control group. Asana with pranayama practices may have better influence on vital capacity of obese men.
