Title

Effect of gymnastics and yoga training on selected physiological and body composition variables among school boys

Abstract

The scientific study of exercise physiology is becoming increasingly important with growing realization of the relation of exercise to health. This study investigated the effect of gymnastics and yoga training on selected physiological and body composition variables among school boys. Ninety school boys were selected at randomly as subjects from the schools in Andhra Pradesh, India. and their age ranged between 11 and 13 years. The selected students were further divided into three groups namely gymnastics group (Exp.-I,n=30), Yoga group (Exp.-II,n=30) and control group (n=30). Gymnastic and yoga training were given to the respective subjects for the period of 12 weeks for 5 days per week.The control group restricted to any experimental training. The following dependent variables such as breath holding time and sum of skin fold thickness (four site:biceps,triceps,sub-scapular and suprailiac). were studied, Data was collected Prior and after experimental training from the subjects on dependent variables. The Analysis of Co-variance (ANCOVA), Scheffe’s post hoc test were used. The results of the study indicated that Gymnastics and yoga training significantly improved physiological, body composition variables such as breath holding time, and sum of skin fold thickness among school boys.
