Efficacy of extensive interval training and pranayama practices on selected physiological variables among untrained college male students
AUTHOR(S): R Authees and Dr. RM Muthueleckuvan
The purpose of the study is to find out the effect of extensive interval training and pranayama practices on selected physiological variables among untrained college male students. For the purpose of the study, thirty six (n=36) untrained college men students were selected from Annamalai University, Chidambaram. The selected subjects were randomly assigned to one of three groups of twelve (n=12) each, such as two experimental and a control groups. The Group I (n=12) undergone interval training and Group II (n=12) undergone pranayama practices for a duration of twelve weeks and the number of sessions per week was confined to three alternative days, in addition to the regular schedule, Group III (n=12) acted as control. The independent variables are interval training and pranayama practices. The criterion variables chosen for this investigation is breath holding time and vital capacity and it was assessed from the manual nostril clip method and Queen’s College Step Test. The subjects in all the three groups were tested prior to and after twelve weeks of experimental treatment. The experimental design used for the present investigation was pre and post test randomized control group design. The data collected from the three groups prior to and post experimentation were statistically analysed by using dependent t-test and ANCOVA to find out the significant difference between pretest and posttest among the selected three groups. Whenever the obtained ‘F’ ratio values was found to be significant, the Scheffe’s test was applied as post hoc test to determine the paired mean differences, if any. In all the cases, .05 level was fixed as level of significance. There was a significance improvement on breath holding time and vital capacity due to the extensive interval training and pranayama practices among untrained college male students. Pranayama practices was found better than extensive interval training on breath holding time and vital capacity.
