Author(s): Dr. Kishor Kumar BS
Sixty subjects were randomly assigned to either experimental group (30) or control group (30). Physical examination and medical checkup at the initiation of the study yielded norminal results in all the subjects and none of the subjects received any medication during the period of the study. The experimental group underwent cycling training programme for a period of 16 weeks, whereas the control group maintained their regular routine activities. The training load was gradually increased from 60% to 80%. Sixteen weeks (slow continuous run) training was imparted with sessions increasing from 3 to 5 per week and the duration increasing from 30 minutes to 55 minutes. BMI, total cholesterol, HDL, LDL and triglycerides of both groups were assessed before and after the training programme. The data was statistically analyzed by using analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) using SPSS statistical computer package. The results of the study showed that there was significant difference among the adjusted post test mean of experimental and control group.
