Relative effect of yogic practice versus physical exercises on maximum oxygen consumption of untrained men
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Y Wise Blessed Singh
The purpose of the study was to find out the relative effect of yogic practice versus physical exercise on maximum oxygen consumption of inter-collegiate athletes. To achieve the purpose of the study the investigator selected forty five untrained men as subject in the age group of 40 years to 45 years. They were divided into three equal groups of fifteen each (n=15) at random. Group-I performed yogic practice, group-II performed physical exercise and group-III acted as control. The data collected from the experimental and control groups on maximum oxygen consumption was statistically analyzed by paired ‘t’ test to find out the significant differences if any between the pre and post-test. Further, percentage of changes was calculated to find out the chances in selected dependent variables due to the impact of experimental treatment. ANCOVA was used to find out the adjusted mean difference between the groups. The result of the study reveals that due to the effect of yogic practice and physical exercise the maximum oxygen consumption of the untrained men was significantly improved. It is also concluded that no significant differences existed between yogic practices and physical exercise groups in improving the maximum oxygen consumption of untrained men.
