Investigation of the effect of yogic exercises on selected physiological parameters among college-level male volleyball players

AUTHOR(S): B Suriyakumar, G Pushpa, V Thiyagarajan and R Ramya
ABSTRACT:
The purpose of the study was to find out the investigation of the effects of yogic practices on the physical and physiological parameters of college-level male volleyball players. A total of 30 players were randomly selected and divided into two groups: Group I, which underwent yogic practices (YEG), and Group II, serving as the control group (CG). YEG participants received yogic training three days a week for eight weeks, while the CG continued their routine activities without additional training. A pilot study was conducted to determine the subjects' initial capacity and set appropriate training loads. The physiological parameters of breath-holding time and resting pulse rate were measured before and after the training period. Statistical analysis using the 't' test was performed to assess any significant improvements at a 0.05 level of confidence. The results showed a significant enhancement in breath-holding time and resting pulse rate among the YPG participants, despite potential influences of factors such as diet, climate, lifestyle, and prior training. These findings align with previous research in the field of sports sciences, indicating that yogic practices had a positive effect of yogic exercise on the physiological parameters of college-level male volleyball players.
