Physical activity does rejuvenation process in human body. It causes people to become healthy individuals, and it also enhances mental health. Therefore, it is an essential or important thing of childhood, because they are the future of a nation. The aim of this research is to assess whether is there any effect of 12 weeks physical training and Koga on selected physiological variables among children. To accomplish the purpose of the current study forty-five adolescent boys who were active in sports age ranged from 14 to 17 years old randomly selected from Chennai (Housing Board Communities around Marina). They are randomly divided and employed into three equal groups, consist of 15 members each. Group-I had Given an hour of selected physical exercise training, Group-II had given Koga Training, and Group-III was control which had not received any special pieces of exercise apart from the regular activities. The physical training and Koga training has selected as independent variables. Vital Capacity and VO2 Max have chosen as dependent variables, and all dependent variables measured by standardized test item as Spirometer test and Cooper’s test. Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) would be applied to find out the significant mean differences. In all the cases, the 0.05 level of confidence has fixed to test the hypothesis. Scheffe’s post hoc test used to find out the mean difference on selected dependent variable among the groups. The results of the study exposed that the experimental groups had finished a significant difference in all the selected variables such as Vital Capacity and VO2 Max to compare the control group. Hence it was concluded that an hour Physical activity and Koga Enhanced Vital Capacity and VO2 Max among children.
