Effect of prescribing and monitoring direct and indirect physical activity on selected health related fitness and cardio respiratory variables among obese school boys
Author(s): Dr. P Kumaravelu and K Govindasamy
Abstract:
The purpose of the present study was to examine the effect of prescribing and monitoring direct and indirect physical activity on selected health related fitness and cardio respiratory variables among obese school boys. The 75 obese school boys were selected from Chennai city only. Their age ranged between 25 to 35 years. To achieve the purpose of the study 75 obese school boys were selected randomly and divided into three equal group each group consist of 25 subject Group – I (Direct physical activity, 25), Groups – II (Indirect physical activity, 25), and Control Group - (Not Exposed to any Experimental Training, 25). Selected for the variables of the study selected health related fitness Cardiovascular endurance, Muscular strength, Muscular endurances, Flexibility and Body Compositions. The cardio respiratory variables selected for the studies were Blood pressure, Pulse rate, and Vital capacity were also taken into consideration. Experimental training periods was for six weeks. After the experimental treatment. The collected data was statistically analyzed by using final test score formed as post test scores of the subject Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to find out the significance among the mean differences, whenever the ‘F’ ratio for adjusted test was found to be significant Scheffe’s Post hoc test was used. In all cases 0.05 level of significance was fixed to test hypothesis. The result of the study proved that there was significant improvement in selected health related fitness cardiovascular endurance, Muscular strength, Muscular endurances, flexibility and body compositions. The cardio respiratory variables selected for the studies were Blood pressure, Pulse rate, and Vital capacity.
