AUTHOR(S): Dr. Aranga Panbilnathan
In the present study, the influence of walking, jogging and running on percentage of body fat was investigated. The total numbers of subjects in this study were forty middle aged men comprised of both teaching and non-teaching staff members of Annamalai University. They were selected and divided into four groups randomly. They were named walking group, jogging group, running group and control group. The former three groups underwent their respective training and the last group acted as control. The data were collected on body weight among walking, jogging, running groups and control group before and after the training programme. The collected data were analyzed statistically by analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) and Scheffe’s post-hoc test was used to test the paired mean differences. Walking, jogging and running training programme groups showed significant reduction in percentage of body fat as compared to control group. Jogging and running training programme groups showed insignificant difference in percentage of body fat indicating that one group is not better than other in bringing out significant changes.
