Author(s): Ujjwal Mahapatra and Dr. Kanchan Bandopadhyay
The purpose of the study was to find out the effects of anaerobic training on selected anthropometric variables among teen agers. The anthropometric variables were as Stature, Sitting height, Acromiale radiale, Radiale stylion radiale, Trochanterion-tibiale laterale, Tibiale mediale-sphyrion tibiale, Arm circumference, Thigh circumference and Calf circumference. To achieve the purpose of the study, two hundred ten (n = 210) teen ager boys were selected at random from three different schools of Basirhat subdivision under North 24 Parganas district, West Bengal. They were divided into six experimental groups consisted of twenty (20) subjects in each group and six control groups consisted of fifteen (15) subjects in each group. Anaerobic training consisted of selected anaerobic exercise for twelve (12) weeks was assigned as treatment to the entire experimental group. The selected criterion variables were assessed using standard procedures, before and after training regimen. Data were analyzed with mean, S.D. and pair t-test using SPSS version 20. The level of significance was set at 0.05. The results showed that all the anthropometric variables improved significantly due to 12-week anaerobic training.
