Author(s): Jithesh P and Sudheesh CS
The study was aimed at examining the effect of physical activity programme intervention of eight weeks duration on BMI, flexibility and strength parameters of pre-schoolers. The study followed a randomised pre-post parallel group experimental design. 50 pre-schoolers in the age group of 5-6 years were randomly assigned to either Experimental (EG) or Control Group (CG). Intervention was given thrice in a week on non-consecutive days for eight weeks. Each session lasted for 5 minutes. Data pertaining the selected variables were collected prior and post to the intervention. The results of the study revealed significant improvement on all the selected variables. It is concluded that eight weeks of physical activity programme improves BMI, flexibility and strength parameters of pre-schoolers.
