Effect of swimming training on selected physiological variables of school going boys
AUTHOR(S): Prasenjit Roy
The primary aim of the study was to determine the Effect of Treadmill Training on Selected Physiological Variables of School Going Children. For the purpose of the study 40 boys (20 for control group and 20 for experimental group) from Ramkrishna Krida Vidyalaya, Amravati, Maharashtra were selected as subjects, the age of the subjects was ranging from 12 to 15 years. Physiological variables were delimited to pulse rate, maximum breath holding capacity and vital capacity.Pulse Rate was measured through Finger tips were put on radial artery and the pulse beats were counted for one minute and score was recorded in numbers. Maximum Breath Holding Capacity was measured through stop watch and score was recorded in seconds as well as vital capacity was measured through dry spirometer and score was recorded in mililiter. The data were collected before the start of 6 weeks swimming training programme (pre test) and immediately after completion of 6 weeks swimming training programme (post test.) To determine the swimming training effect on selected physiological variables Independent and Dependent t-test statistical technique were employed. The level of significance was set at 0.05 to check the significant mean. The findings of statistical analysis revealed that there was significant difference between the means of pre and posttest of Experimental group and posttest of Control and Experimental group for the variables of pulse rate, maximum breath holding capacity and vital capacity.
