Effect of morning exercise on immunity
Author(s): Ajay Kumar and Dr. Birendra Jhajharia
The purpose of present study was to swot the effect of morning exercise on immunity system. Constituents of blood adapt various metabolic changes through low aerobic morning exercises. White blood cells (WBC) are the part of immune system which involved in shielding against pathological conditions. Specifically Neutrophils counts (NC) also contribute to immune system by working of phagocytes activity. Neutrophils releases cytokines which attracts and activates the anti-inflammatory as well as releases O2 free radicals. Macrophages enters the damages remove the cellular debris and promote growth and repair of damaged cell. The purpose of this study was to investigate about influence of morning exercise on TLC and NC. For this purpose 14 cricket players of age 18-24 years (20.64 ± 0.92 years) were selected randomly from Laksmibai national institute of physical education, Gwalior (M.P). The subjects were allocated into two groups: Group-A: Experimental (N1=7) and Group-B: Control (N2=7). The experimental group was under four week’s aerobic training program. Pre-aerobic training blood test and post-aerobic training blood test was conducted on both the groups to determine blood count (TLC) and (NC) The Paired T-Test was employed for analyzing whether the post treatment response is better than the pretreatment response in both the groups. Where obtained t-value for experimental group is (3.36, 4.68) is significant as the p-value is (0.016, 0.03) which is less than 0.05, (p<0.05) TLC and NC significantly improved in experimental group. Where obtained t-value for control group is (0.44, 0.90) is insignificant as the p-value is (0.67, 0.39) which is greter than 0.05, (p>0.05) TLC and NC remain insignificantly changed in control group. Through analyzing above data it can be concluded that four week aerobic training program is helpful for the positive change in total leucocytes counts and neutrophils counts in human blood. Increased lecocytes and neutrophils counts chiefly contribute in immroving immunity system.
