Author(s): Dr. Baljinder Singh Bal and Parmjit Kaur
The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of a short-term Bhastrika Pranayama breathing technique and outcome of an intervention using the training programme to increase student’s health related fitness. For the purpose of present study Sixty (n=60), university level girls between the age group of 19-25 years were selected. The subjects were purposively assigned into two groups: Group-A: Experimental (n1=30); Group-B: Control (n2=30).The subjects from Group-A: Experimental were subjected to a 4-weeks training of Bhastrika Pranayama. Student t test for paired samples was utilized to compare the means of the pre-test and the post-test. Based on the analysis of the results obtained, we conclude that the significant differences were found in components of health-related fitness (i.e.% body fat, fat weight, lean body weight) of university level girls. Insignificant differences were noted in cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance and flexibility of university level girls.
