Effect of callisthenic training on selected physical variables among engineering students
Author(s): Dr. S Somasundaramoorthy
Abstract:
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of callisthenic training on selected physical variables among engineering students. To achieve the purpose of the study, fifty Engineering students were selected randomly from PSG college of Technology, Coimbatore. The subjects aged from 18 to 22 years. The selected subjects were divided into two equal groups namely experimental and control groups of 25 subjects each. The training period was limited to eight weeks and for six days per week. The callisthenic training was selected as independent variables and Flexibility and Balance were selected as dependent variable and it was measured by sit and reach, and stroke stand. All the subjects were tested two days before and immediately after the experimental period on the selected dependent variables. The obtained data from the experimental group and control group before and after the experimental period were statistically analyzed with dependent ‘t’ - test to find out significant improvements. The level of significance was fixed at 0.05 level confidences for all the cases. Significant improvement was found on Flexibility and Balance of experimental group due to the effect of callisthenic training when compared to the control group.
