Comparative effect of yoga practices and aerobic exercises in altering the mean arterial pressure of untrained men
AUTHOR(S): Dr. D Selvam
The purpose of the study was to compare the effect of yoga practice and aerobic exercises in altering the Mean arterial pressure (MAP) of untrained men. 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 yoga practice, group-II performed aerobic exercises and group-III acted as control. Training programme was administered to the untrained men for twelve weeks with six training units per week. 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 yoga practices and aerobic exercises the Mean arterial pressure of the subjects was significantly improved. It is also concluded that yogic practices was significantly better than aerobic exercises in altering mean arterial pressure of untrained men. It produced 3.61% percentage of changes in mean arterial pressure due to yogic practices, 1.57% of changes due to aerobic exercises and 0.53% of changes in control group.
