Impact of pranayama practices on maximum oxygen consumption among working men and women of different age groups
AUTHOR(S): Dr. T Murugesan
The aim of the study was to analyze the changes on maximum oxygen consumption in response to pranayama practices among working men and women of different age groups. To achieve the aim of this study eighty middle aged people were selected in Virudhunagar District schools, in which 40 subjects were men and remaining 40 subjects were women. They were further categorized into four sub-groups of 20 subjects each. The first one is 40-44 age groups of men and women separately and another one 45-49 age groups of men and women separately. The maximum oxygen consumption was selected as dependent variable for the study. During the training period, the experimental groups underwent pranayama practices six days a week for twelve weeks. Three-way analysis of variance was used to find out the influence of each factor independently and also their combined influence on each of the selected variables. The level of confidence was fixed at 0.05 for significance. The result of the study shows that due to the effect of pranayama practices the maximum oxygen consumption of 40-44 and 45-49 age category men and women were significantly decreased. It also gives the existence of insignificant difference on maximum oxygen consumption among gender in relevance to different age categories during pre and post tests.
