The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of Strength training on selected physiological variables among obese adolescent girls. To achieve the purpose of this study fifteen students from Secondary School, Vijayapura. Erode were randomly selected as subjects. They were clinically confirmed cases of obesity and their age ranged between 13 and 17 years. The selected subjects were made to undergo Strength training for the period of 6 weeks. The subjects were free to withdraw their consent in case of feeling any discomfort during the period of their participation, but there was no dropout during the study. The following physiological variables such as resting pulse rate and vital capacity were selected as dependent variables. The selected physiological were tested with standardized tests. The pre-test data were collected before the training programme and the post-test data were collected after the training programme. In both the cases the data were collected in a single day at the same time. Through this study the authors have found out that the selected Strength training improve the selected physiological variables such as resting pulse rate in 8.5% and vital capacity in 19.5% Hence the authors can recommend the Strength training to all the obese adolescent girls for improving the selected physiological variables among them.
