Effect of aerobic dance and pranayama on selected physiological variables
AUTHOR(S): Gulam Mohmad Dar
The purpose of this investigation was to study the effect of aerobic dance and pranayama on selected physiological variables. The sources of the data were the students of Mahatma Jyotiba fule Mahavidyalaya Amravati. For the present study 60 male subjects were selected randomly from Mahatma Jyotiba fule Mahavidyalaya Amravati. The age group of the subjects ranged between 18 to 20 years. For the present study researcher uses the pulse rate stop watch to measure in beats/minutes and vital capacity to measure Micro spirometer, Disposable cardboard moth pieces, sprit and cotton used and is measured in liters. The selected subjects were randomly divided into three groups, aerobic dance experimental groups (A) pranayama experimental groups (B) and control group (C). The experimental group under goes 6 weeks training programme, for 6 days in a week, for 45minuts per day, under the supervision of the guide. The control group does not undergo any specific training during the period of six week programme. The data were analyzed by applying t-test to determine the significant difference between the pre-test and post-test means of all the three groups viz. Experimental Group-A training in aerobic dance, Experimental Group-B training in pranayama and Control Group-C separately. For testing hypothesis the level of significance was set at 0.05, which was considered to be adequate for the purpose of the study. Results: There was significant difference in pulse rate, forced vital capacity (FVC), forced rxpiratory volume in first second (FEV1) and pulse rate and peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) between pre and post test in aerobic dance group-(A) and pranayama experimental group-(B) are significant. But control group-(C) in all four variables are not significant.
