Author(s): Dr. Biju Sukumar
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of resistance exercise on total cholesterol. To achieve this purpose of the study, forty female students studying from various department, at Sree Narayana College, Chempazhanthy, Trivandrum, Kerala, India. (n=40) were randomly selected as subjects and their age ranged between 18 and 22 years. The selected subjects were randomly assigned into two equal groups such as experimental group (EG) and control group (CG) with twenty subjects each (n=20). The experimental groups underwent their respective experimental treatment for eight weeks three days per week a session on each day. Control group was not engaged to any specific training apart from their curriculum. Resistance endurance was taken as variable for this investigation. The pre and post test were conducted one day before and after the experimental treatment. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to analyze the collected data. The results revealed that the experimental group (EG) produced significant improvement (p≤0.05) due to resistance training on strength endurance when compared to control group (CG).
