Author(s): DR. Vikram Singh, Dr. Anil Vinayak and Dr. Parmod Kumar Sethi
120 males in the age group of 18 to 25 years who attended a regular check up programme over a 2 weeks camp were studied. The marathon runners, weight lifters and yoga group participants were those who had actively participated in related program at least 4 days a week and done at least 45 minutes of training or practice whereas the control group were sedentary males. Spirometric data for each participant were collected for that active period of time ensuring that there was not more than 3 days gap in the training of each experimental group participant. The study included the following sports: marathon (full) runners(n = 30), control (n = 30), weightlifting (n =30), yoga (n=30), control group (n=30). One way ANOVA statistical package SPSS 23 version was used to draw inferences. It was observed that the marathon runners and yoga group showed significant breathing parameters as compared to weightlifting and control group.
