Effect of aerobics and yoga training on body composition of school boys
AUTHOR(S): Tandel Pratikkumar Jaykishanbhai
Children become obese and overweight for a variety of reasons. The most common causes are genetic factors, lack of physical activity, unhealthy eating patterns or a combination of these factors. Only in rare cases is an overweight caused by a medical condition such as a hormonal problem. A physical exam and some blood tests can rule out the possibility of a medical condition as a cause of obesity. To achieve this purpose, sixty school boys will be chosen at random as a subject with an age range between 14 and 17 years. The subjects were randomly classified into three equal groups consisting of 20 in each group. Basic parameters such as weight and fat percentage were measured. Each subject was tested according to the Tanita body composition analyzer. Descriptive statistics, ANCOVA and post hoc LSD testing were used to analyze the data. The results showed a significant reduction in body composition (weight and percentage of fat) in the aerobic and yoga groups compared to the control group (p< 0.05). Overall, the results showed that aerobic and yoga training has a significant effect on body composition.
