Author(s): S Manjappan and Dr. S Alagesan
The purpose of the study was to find out the impact of physical conditioning exercises and yogic practices on breath holding time among university men students. To achieve the purpose of this study, thirty university men students selected from various departments. The age, height and weight of the subjects ranged from 18 to 24 years, 155 to 165 centimetres and 55 to 65 kilograms respectively. They were divided into three groups; each group consisted of ten subjects. Group-I underwent physical conditioning exercises, group-II underwent yoga practice and Group – III acted as control. The data collected from the three groups prior to and post experimentation were statistically analyzed by analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). When the obtained ‘F’ ratio value was significant the Scheffe’s test was applied as post hoc test to determine the paired mean differences, if any. In all the cases statistical significance was fixed at 0.05 levels. The result showed that there was a significant increased on breath holding time of the experimental group’s men students compared to control group.
