AUTHOR(S): Dr. D Devaki
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of Yogic Training and Resistance Training on Reaction time among Polytechnic College students. To achieve the purpose of the study, 60 male students from the Government Polytechnic College, RK Nagar, Chnnai-81, were selected at random as subjects, in the age group of 16 to 20 years. The chosen subjects were randomly assigned into three groups of 30 each. Group-I acted as control, group-II followed Yogic Practices and group-III resistance exercises group subjects underwent trainings for 7 weeks. A qualified physician examined the subjects medically and declared that they were fit to undergo the training programme. Nelson Hand and Foot Reaction test executed correctly to access the Reaction time. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was computed (Clarke & Clarke, 1972) for the data collected from the control and experimental groups during pretest and posttest separately for each variable. Further, since three groups were involved, whenever the ‘F’ ratio was significant, Scheffé S post hoc test was used to determine which of the paired mean differed significantly. Conversely the capability of Reaction time, are maintained stable for 7 weeks days through the training cessation period. However the favor to Resistance training group.
