Effect of aerobic training and selected asanas practice in lipids profile on overweight men
AUTHOR(S): Dr. D Sureshkumar
The present study was designed to find out the effect of aerobic training and selected asanas practice in lipids profile on overweight men. To achieve the purpose of the study, thirty overweight men were randomly selected from various faculties of Annamalai University, Chidambaram, Tamilnadu and their age ranges between 35 to 45 years. Selected subjects were divided into three groups with ten members of each. Group 1 served as control, Group 2 as asana training and Group 3 as aerobic training group. Aerobic exercise and asanas were performed by the specific training groups for a period 12 weeks (4 days/ week) and 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 lipids profile such as total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TG) and low density lipoproteins (LDL) and to find out the significant effect of training on overweight men. The data were collected and analyzed using ANCOVA. Further Scheffe’s post hoc test was applied to know the paired mean difference if the optioned ‘f’ ration was significant. Level of confidence was fixed at 0.05. The resulted study shows that subjects performing aerobic and asanas group were found to be efficient in reducing the lipids levels when compared to control group.
