AUTHOR(S): Dr. Bupesh S Moorthy and Dr. S Alagesan
The purpose of the present study was to find the effect of yogic practice on muscular strength, resting pulse rate and mean arterial pressure. For this purpose, thirty badminton players studying in various classes and departments of Annamalai University, Chidambaram, Tamil Nadu, India in the age group of 18 – 25 years were selected. They were divided into two equal groups, each group consisted of fifteen subjects, in which group – I underwent yoga practice and group – II acted as control group who did not participate in any special training. The training period for this study was five days in a week for twelve weeks. Prior to and after the training period the subjects were tested for muscular strength, resting pulse rate, mean arterial pressure. Muscular strength was measured by conducting push-ups test, resting pulse rate was measured by counting the pulse per minute at resting condition and mean arterial pressure was measured by using a formula. The result of the study has shown that the yoga practice group has significantly improved the muscular endurance and also significant reduction in resting pulse rate and mean arterial pressure after the thirteen weeks of yogic practices.
