Aerobic exercise reduces the risk of many conditions, including obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, stroke and certain types of cancer. Weight-bearing aerobic exercises, such as walking, help decrease the risk of osteoporosis. For general health and fitness benefits, such as reducing your risk of heart disease and improving your stamina, it is recommended that you do some form of moderate intensity aerobic exercise on most, and preferably all, days of the week, for a minimum of 30 minutes a day. The Present study the purpose of the study find out the effect of aerobic exercise with and without dieting regulations on abdominal strength and body mass index (BMI) among obese school boys. The study was formulated as a true random group design, consisting of a pretest and posttest. The subjects (n=60) were randomly assigned to three equal groups of twenty obese school boys in each. The groups were assigned as Experimental Groups I, II and control group respectively. Pre tests were conducted for all the subjects on flexibility and percent body fat. After the experiment period of twelve weeks post test scores were obtained. The difference between the initial and final scores was considered the effect of the experimental treatment. To test statistical significance, statistical tool ANCOVA was used to find out the effect of aerobic exercise and dieting regulations on obese school boys. Even though the mean values proved that aerobic exercise with diet was better than aerobic exercise without diet in improving abdominal strength the difference was not significant. Hence, it was found that Aerobics with and without diet were significantly better than control group in improving Abdominal Strength of the obese school boys.
