Effect of high intensitiy cardiac circuit exercises on selected anthropometric measures among obese female male students
Author(s): Dr. Biju Sukumar
The purpose of present study was to find out the effect of high intensity cardiac circuit exercises on selected anthropometric measures among obese Female students. To achieve this purpose, (n=30) thirty obese Female students, studying in various classes in St. Michael’s College Cherthala, Kerala. In the age group of 18 - 25 years were selected as subjects. The selected 30 subjects were divided into two equal groups, in which, group – I (n = 15) underwent high intensity cardiac circuit exercise with 65% of heart rate, group – II (n = 15) acted as control which did not participate in any special training. The training programme was carried three days per week for twelve weeks (alternative days). Prior to and after the training period the subjects were tested for; body mass index and percentage of body fat. Body mass index (BMI) was measured by using Deurenberg et al, formula and percentage of body fat was measured by using Quetelet index. The statistical tool were used for the present study is Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA). The result of the study was a significant decrease on percentage of body fat and body mass index after twelve weeks of high intensity cardiac circuit programme. However the decrease was favour of experimental group. There was a significant difference was occurred between high intensity cardiac circuit exercises and control group after twelve weeks of high intensity cardiac circuit programme.
