Influence of aerobic training and asanas practice on coronary heart disease risk factors among obese men
Author(s): Dr. P Anandhan
The purpose of the study was influence of aerobic training and asanas practice on coronary heart disease (CHD) risk factors in obese men. Thirty six obese men (BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2) were randomly selected subjects from working in various faculties of Annamalai University, India. The selected subjects were age, height and weight ranged was 38 ± 3 years, 167 ± 9 cm and 89 ± 14 kg respectively. Selected subjects were divided into three groups and twelve subjects (n=12) of each group. Group I underwent aerobic training, Group II underwent asanas practice and Group III act as control. The training program consisted of 12 week (4 day/ week) in 30 to 45 minutes per day. The biochemical analyses were triglycerides (TG), low density lipoproteins (LDL) and high density lipoproteins (HDL). Blood samples were collected prior to after the completion of 12 weeks training period. The pre and post-test means were collected from three groups for using by analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). The mean difference optioned ‘f’ ratio was significant fixed at 0.05 level of confidence. The results of study suggest that both training programs have found to be better than control group. However, it was concluded that aerobic training was improved better than asanas practice on blood lipids profile (LDL, HDL and TG) level among obese men. The result of study have aerobic training and asanas practice decreased in TG, LDL level and increased in HDL level in obese men associated with reduced coronary heart disease.
