Effect of aerobic and asanas on biochemical changes in obese adults
AUTHOR(S): Dr. G Gokul Krishnan
The aim of the study was to analyze the effect of aerobic training and selected asanas on biochemical (lipoproteins) in young obese adults. To achieve the purpose, thirty obese men students were selected randomly from different faculties of Govt. Arts and Sciences College, Manalmedu, Tamil Nadu, India and their age ranges between 18 to 25 years. Selected subjects were classified into three groups with ten members of each. Group 1 served as control, Group 2 act as aerobic training and Group 3 as asana training group. Exercise training such as aerobic exercise and selected asana were given to the experimental training groups for a period of three months (4 days/week) whereas the control group was given no special training other than regular activities. Blood samples were collected before and after the completion of full training course. Biochemical analyses were done on plasma lipoproteins (VLDL, LDL and HDL) to find out the significant effect of training on obese men. The data were collected and statistically analyzed using ANOVA and DMRT and they are significant at p<0.01. The resulted study shows significant changes in the lipoprotein levels in the experimental training groups than control.
