Title

EFFECT OF RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES ON HEALTH RELATED FITNESS OF SELECTED AGE GROUP SCHOOL GIRLS

Abstract

Today’s world has become so much dependent on machineries and gadgets that the human physique is no more required for any work. It is more evident with kids getting clinched on to their mobile or electronic devices. It has become common for an Indian parent to introduce mobile phones to their children just to avoid crying. Kids, from a very infant age are pushed into the world of electronic gadgets. It is very much essential that they are made aware about Health related fitness and its benefits from school level itself. This study has been a sincere effort by the research scholar to do something to the community and thereby stress on the importance of recreational activities as a means to develop healthy habits and overall health related fitness at school level. For the purpose of the current study 64 schools girls in the age group 10-14 years were selected. Health related fitness components cardiovascular endurance, muscular endurance, flexibility and muscular strength were chosen as the dependent variables for the study. Aerobics activities (in the form of fun combined with some rhythmic activities) and recreational minor games were the independent variables. After the pre-tests, all the subjects in the experimental group were given Recreational activities (Aerobic/Rhythmic & Minor Games) for a period of 6 weeks; four sessions a week, and each session lasted 30-40 min each. During this period, the subjects of control group had their normal school activities and it was ensured that they did not get involved in any sort of additional recreational or physical activities. After 6 weeks practice, both the groups were tested again for the final post-tests. Based on the purpose and hypothesis stated, it was found that 6-week recreational activities for school girls in the age group 10-14 years resulted in significant change in muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance and flexibility. Thus, it can be said regular involvement in the form of some rhythmic activities or minor games should be an integral part of our school curriculum, and the same should be understood by the parents.
