The aim of the study was to test the hypothesis that a combine concurrent training yogic activities regimen may enhance performance ability of air pistol shooters. 40 male shooters age between 18-25 years were selected as samples for the study from Jammu and Kashmir by purposive sampling and were randomized into two groups i.e. experimental and control group. Single group pretest posttest group design was used to assess physiological and fitness parameters, and equivalent group pretest posttest was used to assess performance parameter. The selected physiological and performance parameter were vital capacity, cardio-vascular endurance, stability, strength, reaction time and individual match score. The said parameters were measured by Spiro meter, Harvard step test, Stroke static test, push-ups test, Nelson hand reaction time test and individual score through matches. Concurrent training and Yogic activities was given on alternate day’s means three days for concurrent and three days for yogic activities every week for six weeks. Pretest and posttest was taken before and after training program. Physiological variables mean and standard deviation of pretest was (467.00±52.92, 65.74±18.28, 23.32±7.77, 19.30±6.94, 0.198±0.0279) respectively, mean and standard deviation of posttest was (505.50±60.652, 76.98±17.85, 30.35±6.746, 24.95±7.66, 0.195±0.027) respectively and the calculated ‘t’ value of subject was 11.00 for vital capacity, ‘t’ value for cardio-vascular endurance was 11.184, ‘t’ value for stability was 9.249, ‘t’ value for strength was 11.839, and the ‘t’ value for reaction time was 3.594. Whereas the change in performance mean and standard deviation of experimental group was (20.50±6.151), while the change in performance mean and standard deviation of control group was (1.60±3.45). The calculated ‘t’ value of performance was 11.980. All the calculated ‘t’ values for respective physiological and performance parameters were found statistically significant at 0.05 level (p = 0.001). From the above results it can be concluded that six week combine concurrent and yogic activities training program was effective to improve the physiological and performance parameters which ultimately enhance the shooting skill of 10 meter air pistol shooters.
