Author(s): Jasbir Singh and Dr. Prasanta Kumar Das
This study was designed to find out the effect of selected Yogic exercises on forced vital capacity (FVC) and resting pulse rate (RPR) of undergraduate male students. To achieve this purpose a total of sixty (n=60) undergraduate male students were purposively selected from Akal college of physical education Mastuana Sahib, Sangrur (Punjab) as subjects. All subjects were healthy having no physical ailment and their age ranged from 18 to 22 years. The selected subjects were randomly divided into two equal groups. Group I served as the treatment group (n=30) and group II was treated a control group (n=30). The dependent variables selected for this study (FVC and RPR) were measured with a spirometer and radial pulse method respectively. All the subjects were tested at baseline and after the 6 weeks training period for FVC and RPR. Random group pre-test and post-test design was used as an experimental design. Then the collected data was statistically analyzed by using dependent ‘t’-test. The result showed a significant (p < 0.05) improvement in FVC with no change in RPR of the experimental group and there was no significant change was recorded in the control group on FVC and RPR. It concludes that even 6-week yogic exercises are effective enough on forced vital capacity in undergraduate male subjects.
