Effect of interval training and pranayama practices on VO2 max untrained college male students
Author(s): Dr. M Muthuraj
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of interval training and pranayama practices on VO2 Max among untrained college male students. To achieve the purpose of the study, forty five untrained men students were selected as subjects. The age, height and weight of the subjects ranged from 18 to 22 years, 162 to 175 centimeters and 56 to 70 kilograms respectively. The selected subjects were randomly assigned into four equal groups of 15 subjects each. Group I underwent interval training, group II underwent pranayama practice and group III acted as control. The collected data analysed by analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). Since three groups were involved, whenever the obtained ‘F’ ratio for adjusted post test means was found to be significant, the Scheffe’s test was applied as post hoc test to determine the paired mean differences. The result of the study stated that significant differences exist among the experimental and control groups on VO2 Max.
