Effect of Suryanamaskar on resting heart rate of school girls
AUTHOR(S): Anurodh Singh Sisodia
The objectives of the study were to determine the main effect of training durations (within-groups), the main effect of groups (between-groups) and interaction effect (combined effect of training durations and groups) on resting heart rate due to practices of Suryanamaskar. Mixed design was used for the study. Three groups were created (pace 1, pace 2 and pace 4 groups). Ten girls were in each group in the range of 15 – 17 years. First experimental group performed one round of Suryanamaskar in 1 minute, second experimental group in 2 minutes and third experimental group in 4 minutes. Total treatment duration was six weeks. Resting heart rate was measured by stop watch and recorded in beats per minute before (pretest), after 3 weeks and after 6 weeks of all three groups. 3 x 3 mixed factorial ANOVA was used and level of significance was set at 0.05. The findings of the study revealed that practice of Suryanamaskar for 3 weeks and 6 weeks are not sufficient to bring out significant improvement on resting heart rate (main effect of training duration). There was no interaction effect as in all three groups. There was no significant difference found among three groups (main effect of groups) on resting heart rate at pretest, after 3 weeks and after 6 weeks.
