Comparative effect of treadmill exercise and yoga on Superoxide dismutase level in normal young adults
Author(s): Rucha Wagh, Monica Yunati and Shrabani Bhattacharya
Fifty male subjects of age group 18-20years and were divided into two groups, treadmill exercise (Group A) and yoga (Group B) consisting of 25 each in Department of Physiology at Exercise Physiology Lab (JNMC, DMIMS, Sawangi Meghe, Wardha). On regular performance of exercise, subjects were assessed at the start of and after 3 months of the training schedule (45min/ 5days/ week). Blood samples were collected to assess the SOD levels. Results were compared using student paired "t" test and unpaired "t" test & age-wise distribution by Chi-Square test. Results showed that the pre-exercise levels of SOD in Group A (11.56±1.0) and Group B (11.56±1.0) and the post-exercise levels in Group A (12.01±1.09) and Group B (13.31±0.9). Thus the above study shows that yoga has more beneficial effect than the treadmill exercise which leads to decrease in the free radical production.
